The Boko Haram insurgency and terrorist conflict in Nigeria has resulted in humanitarian crisis in which over 20,000 people have been killed and about 2.6 million displaced. Several strategies have been employed in an attempt at resolving the crises. The effort of government is however yielding result as peace is gradually returning to the region. What is of great concern now is plight of the displaced persons (otherwise referred to as internally displaced persons). Although government is making efforts in rehabilitating and resettling the people by returning them to their original abode. There are however challenges and constraints in this regard, there is therefore the need to evaluate the different strategies being employed by government and non-governmental organizations in the bid to resettle and rehabilitate the people. Survey method is employed for data collection through questionnaire and interview; Findings may likely reveal the need to re-appraise the current resettlement and rehabilitation strategies as a way of determining it appropriateness, or otherwise, the Boko-Haram insurgent affected communities are in no doubt clamouring for revitalization and infrastructural rebuild as well as adequate provision of social services, reconstruction of buildings and provision of adequate security for both life and properties, more than ever there is the need for peace building as a preventive measure towards curbing security challenges and enhancing harmonious coexistence, this author posit that resettling and rehabilitation are imperative in the post-conflict society and belief that through this peace, growth and development can be achieved.
