The increasing numbers, behaviour and influence of International non governmental organization (INGOs) in recent times within the local and international system has drawn attention in the academic sphere and these behaviours could be seen through their activities as dominant actors in developmental grounds and as influencers in foreign policy of states. The study used the mixed method approach; secondary data analysis, and observations which rely on secondary sources like journals, textbooks and online publications which are relevant to the study. The findings shows that INGOs have directly and indirectly influenced the decision making and policies of states through their facilitating or advocacy activities in the international arena to promote and ensure compliance of International humanitarian laws. It was concluded that INGOs has effectively and actively influenced states foreign policies and recommended that INGOs should be closely monitored, to limit crossing their boundaries even as they render excellent humanitarian aids to affected victims of conflicts.
