Overview of position:
Northeast Nigeria is facing a problem of weapons & explosive hazard contamination as a result of protracted conflict. The presence of Explosive Remnants of War (ERW), Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) & landmines of an improvised nature, poses a serious threat to civilians as well as to United Nations & humanitarian personnel operating in the north east of the country. Our client deployed to Nigeria in April 2017 to conduct an explosive threat scoping mission to Nigeria which resulted in the recommendation of the establishment of a humanitarian mine action coordination & support capacity in Maiduguri & immediate provision as appropriate, technical response to the explosive contamination impacting the humanitarian crisis in the north east. In addition, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) for division 7 of the Nigerian army made a request through the Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator in December 2017, to have our clients presence in the north east. The GOC highlighted the negative implications of the explosive threat including IED & Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) on IDP return, livelihoods & return to normalcy in northeast of Nigeria. In 2018 our client established a permanent presence to implement a mine action program in Nigeria to:
Improve the protection of civilians & facilitate humanitarian assistance.
Enhance national capacity to mitigate explosive threats & enable compliance with international treaty obligations.
Reduce the explosive threat to United Nations personnel & humanitarian workers.
According to the 2020 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO), 8.7 million people including 1.7 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) & 1.2 people returnees are in need of humanitarian assistance in Borno, Adamawa & Yobe (BAY) atates in north east Nigeria due to the ongoing crisis. Given the widespread explosive ordnance contamination & prevalent use of IEDs by non state armed groups, the 2021 NHO identifies 1.5 million people in need of mine action in north east Nigeria. There were 259 explosive incidents in 2020 & another 216 incidents took place from January to June 2021. From 2016 till June 2021, 1,247 people were killed & 2,048 injured, out of which 748 civilians were killed & 1297 civilians were injured. The 2021 NHO indicates 75% of incidents involving UXO could have been prevented by Non Technical Surveys (NTS) to identify & mark suspected contaminated areas & release safe land & roads & Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE) to deliver life saving knowledge & foster safe behaviour. The need for EORE remains high particularly in Borno with 1.16 million people in need but also in Adamawa & Yobe where more than 200,000 & 176,000 people respectively need EORE.
