Outcome of the study however shows some form of positive relationship between the provision of humanitarian aid and development in insecurity-infested communities. The study equally found such factors as low political will to enhance security, lack of technical expertise on the part of humanitarian logistics workers, lack of proper surveillance technology to monitor activities and population of inhabitants in the inaccessible communities, and the lack of interagency collaboration and synergy among the Nigerian security services as being the major constraint against the delivery of humanitarian aid and logistics in Borno state, Nigeria.
