This paper is an exposition on the plight of refugees and
displaced persons in Nigeria and the impact which their plight has had on the
society. The research contends that displaced persons are victims of various
kinds of injustices, confrontations, perpetrated by either the government
against them or by other means like communal clashes, riots, terrorism,
religious conflicts, natural disaster and so on, they remain within their
country but outside their community While the refugees are those displaced but
have sought for refuge across the borders of their country. The study is
divided into six chapters, the research questions were answered using the
responses gotten from the distributed questionnaires and oral interviews and
were analyzed using the simple percentage (%) table.
The study however, concludes that displaced persons and
refugees have faced horrible situations which have invariably had negative
impacts on the society as they depend on them for survival. Thus, the study
suggested that the Nigerian government should tighten the security affairs of
the nation, focus more on reducing human casualties, loss of livelihood, food insecurity and more focus on the rehabilitation of internally displaced persons and refugees back to the society, in order to nip the threats emanating from the humanitarian crises and assist the refugees and displaced persons to get back to their
