Abstract: Nigerians in Bakassi were evacuated after International Court of Arbitration awarded Bakassi to Cameroon. This study, carried out after two years of resettlement, was aimed at determining the incidence, health-seeking occurrences and spatial clustering of clinical malaria among New Bakassi resettlees at Ekpiri-Ikang, Nigeria. Records from approved hospitals and structured questionnaires were employed. Overall, 25.4% of resettlees seeking medical assistance were diagnosed with clinical malaria. Prevalence was highest among the 0-9 years age group; higher among females of reproductive age than among their male counterparts
