Event type: Humanitarian (Population displacement (IDP))
Attacks by Non State Armed Groups (NSAG) have devastated the town of Rann in North-East Nigeria. With the departure of the security forces, the Non State Armed Groups occupied the town and burnt down a significant number of homes. The town has been attacked 4 times by Non State Armed Groups since September 2018. After security forces left the town on Sunday 27 January 2019, most of the population left with them, heading towards the nearby town of Goura in Cameroon, where it is estimated that 35 000 people have arrived in need of shelter. OCHA Nigeria requested satellite images of the towns of Rann and Goura, as well as the area in between, in order to assess the extent of the damage, and identify any temporary shelters which may have been set up.
