Konduga and Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC) were the next most affected.

- IDP families living in tents had the most deprivation across all basic needs, followed by IDPs in collective centres and then IDPs living in host communities. Permanent residents generally had the lowest level of basic needs shortage. Findings show that IDPs in host communities are always supported by their host residents, hence the reason the lower level of deprivation compared to IDPs in tents and collective centres.
