ABSTRACT

This research entitled “assessment of intra-urban migration pattern in Maiduguri during the period of insurgency” covers the period between 2009-2015 and explores new issues in understanding the nature, trend, pattern and effects of intra-urban migration on both the migrants and their destinations. Purposive sampling method was used to explore individual migrants from six selected words of Gomari air port, Ngomari Costain, Bolori, Mashamari, Maisandari I and Mairi wards. A total of 300copies of the questionnaire were administered to migrant household heads, 50 copies in each ward. These migrant residents were identified through the ward heads. In addition to this, each of the ward head was also interviewed. Data collected was analyzed using simple descriptive statistics and presented in graphs. Results revealed that the major course of this migration is conflict and insecurity as a result of an extremist Islamic sect popularly called Boko haram as shown by more than 80% of the respondents in almost all the selected wards. Results also revealed that the pattern of migration is non-uniform as people move irrespective of their income or social status. Many people have lost their relatives and loved ones including their homes and businesses or other sources of livelihood. There is also a profound effect on the receiving areas (the destination), which include overcrowding and its attendant consequences; construction of illegal and substandard houses which changed the physical appearance of the city; over stretching of utilities and services such as water, medical facilities, schools etc, the creation of slum and diseases out break have also been witnessed. The study concluded that assistance from government and donor agencies hardly reach this set of migrants except those in the IDP camps, government and donor agencies should therefore device a means of reaching out to this set of migrants so as to ease their suffering and also address the issue of illegal and sub-standard buildings through the agencies responsible.
