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
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.
