Nigeria through OCHA, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
Although figures are difficult to quantify, OCHA estimate 5.9 million people have
been affected by the insurgency in northeast Nigeria and an estimated 350,000 people
have been displacedsince May 2013, both within Nigeria and across the borders into
Chad, Niger and Cameroon. Most displaced people are living in host communities, although
around 5,000 are in camps. OCHA has assessed the priority needs of affected people
as food, water, health and shelter.</p><p> </p>
