Cartographic Display of 403 Towns & Communities with Fulani Herdsmen Settlements in Alaigbo – Compilation by Intersociety
There were allegations of a significant influx of jobless youths from the North into Southern Nigerian during the Covid-19 pandemic shutdown throughout the country. Despite the official implementation of interstate border closure, trailer trucks loaded with unemployed Northern youths were intercepted in many parts of the South. The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, was reported to have personally intervened to deal with the situation in his jurisdiction.
In May and June 2029, Intersociety carried out field research to locate the Fulani herdsmen settlements in Igbo land (Alaigbo). Hundreds of settlements identified were tabulated and fed into a cartographic software that produced accurate maps of the occupied towns and communities across Alaigbo. For more precise resolution, each of the five Southeast states is mapped separately to provide additional details for all the states.
