At least 76,000 Internally Displaced People have been put at risk, following recent Boko Haram attacks which have interrupted the delivery of aid to Rann, Borno State. 

The United Nations in a statement on Friday said the interruption in the delivery of humanitarian assistance to Rann is the direct result of an attack that started at dusk on 14 January 2019 on a military base and continued into the next day.

According to the statement by the UN’s Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr. Edward Kallon, a medical clinic, warehouses with humanitarian supplies and accommodation for aid workers were looted and/or destroyed in the attack, and the market and shelters in the camp were burned down by the attackers.

Kallon also noted that several civilian fatalities have also been reported, although the total number is not yet known, and thousands are reported to have fled to Cameroon.
