This memo covers the month of May 2015 (data coding and uploading lags by a month) for Borno, Yobe, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Bayelsa, and Delta.

The NSRP Observatory platform received fewer reports in May than it did in the previous months, although the past three months have had some of the highest levels of reported incidents of Violence Affecting Women and Girls (VAWG) since the Observatory was established last year. Reports continued highlighting moderate to high levels of violence affecting women and girls across most NSRP focus states. In the Niger Delta, reports of VAWG have been primarily focused on domestic and sexual violence, while in the north, VAWG has been tied to insurgency and counter-insurgency violence.
