Summary

With the onset of the rainy season in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno, varying degrees of damages have been reported in multiple locations in the region. Heavy rainfalls, accompanied by strong winds have caused serious damages to shelters and infrastructures.
On 27 July  2022, the combination of heavy rainfalls with the opening of a dam gate in Cameroon led to the flooding of the Wajare community and a large segment of Banki camp in Buduwa/Bula Chirabe ward of Bama LGA in Borno State. IOM’s DTM programme carried out an assessment to ascertain the level of damage sustained in the affected camp. Over 7,389 individuals from 2,332 households were displaced from the camp to a less affected part of the host communities in Banki.
