Nigeria like many African countries has been faced with numerous challenges that threaten her corporate existence. Religious conflicts, inter-ethnic rivalry,
farmers-herders clashes, cattle rustling and Boko Haram insurgency caused destruction of lives and property. As a result, hundreds and thousands of people became refugees elsewhere. Thereafter, the emergence of internally displaced persons (IDPs) had begun especially in the north-eastern part of the country. The paper examines the nitty-gritty of the management of IDPs in the country. The management of IDPs in the country has been characterized by many challenges including corruption, inadequate funding. The paper examines the effects of such challenges like violation of fundamental human rights. The paper in the final analysis recommends that government and other stakeholders should form a Joint Task Force Committee to take the responsibility of ensuring a proper supervision in the distribution of materials.
