Identification of Jurisprudential Guide - Nigeria

Please be advised that the Acting Chairperson of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) identified a decision of the Refugee Appeal Division (RAD) as a Jurisprudential Guide (JG). This JG addresses internal flight alternatives in major cities in south and central Nigeria for claimants fleeing non-state actors.

JGs assist Refugee Protection Division (RPD) and RAD members in rendering decisions on cases with similar facts and promote consistency in decision making. As Nigeria is a major source country for the RPD and RAD, it is my hope that this JG will encourage an efficient approach to Nigerian claims and appeals with similar facts.

For further details, please refer to the policy note and JG (RAD decision TB7-19851) which are available on the Jurisprudential Guides webpage.
