Out of the total registered population, 5,626 individuals (1,938 households) which represent 15 per cent were newly registered within the period of 1 April - 30 November 2019. Majority (59%) of the newly registered individuals are from Kukawa LGA, 24% from Guzamala LGA, 12% from wards within Monguno LGA, 3% from Marte, 1% from Nganzai and a further 1% from other LGAs in Borno.
