“I want to start with an update on Nigeria, from our humanitarian colleagues on the situation in Dikwa in Borno State. The humanitarians are concerned about the situation of thousands of internal displaced people and civilians in the area, following the recent attacks we briefed you on yesterday. Following intense attacks in Marte and surrounding areas since February 14th , nearly 3,400 displaced people including more than 2,000 children arrived in Dikwa. It’s estimated that there are more than 76,000 internal displaced in the town of Dikwa due to the ongoing conflict since 2009. As of now, and following ongoing military operations on the ground, we along with our partners are unable to assess further the humanitarian situation. We reiterated on calls on all armed parties to immediately stop the violence and ensure the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructures, humanitarian assets as well as personnel.”
