UnSettlement: Urban displacement in the 21st century: City of challenge and opportunity - Employment and livelihoods for internally displaced people in Maiduguri, Borno State
Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, declared Boko Haram “technically defeated” in 2015, but in reality the insurgency is far from over. The number of suicide bomb attacks was at its highest in two years in 2017. The group’s violence and the military campaign against it have forced 1.9 million people to flee their homes in north-eastern Nigeria since 2009, and Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, at one point doubled in size as many sought the relative security of the city and its periphery.
