Summary

The report covers the period of 15 February to 31 March 2017 and includes six most-a­ffected states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe. As of 31 March 2017, the estimated number of IDPs in these states is 1,832,743 (326,010 households), representing a decrease of 77,223 (4%) from the figure of 1,899,830 in the last round (DTM Round XIV). The key reasons for population movement continue to be to return to their place of origin and to search for livelihood opportunities. People were also displaced due to continuing military action and in some instances, due to communal clashes. Borno continued to host the majority of IDPs (1,428,947), followed by Adamawa (146,605) and Yobe (116,619).
