According to UNHCR, the verification is to improve its data on the economic capacities within the population, identify persons with specific needs and extremely vulnerable persons. The exercise also targets them for life-saving interventions, including food assistance, non-food items and livelihood support.

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday in Calabar, Mr. Udama Stephen, a Psychiatric Nurse working with Red Cross Society, confirmed the exercise and stated the 18,000 refugees would be treated free of charge as they brought their registration cards.
