Borno Govt. Intends To Close IDP Camps Next Year

The Borno State government says it intends to close all Internally Displaced People (IDP)’s camps by the first quarter of next year.

Three out of the 20 Local councils sacked by insurgents since early this year have concluded plans to return to their original homes following its liberation.
Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, made known his plans on rebuilding of lost homes and closing up makeshift camps.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) is also channelling its intervention programme towards rebuilding of destroyed communities.
NEMA DG, Sani Sidi, observed that the agency has supported the development by donating building materials as more communities prepare to return home, in addition to food items specifically for the returning IDPs.
A Boko Haram suspect arrested by the youth vigilante group who confessed to master minding recent suicide bombings in Mulai and Umarari was later paraded before the State governor and NEMA officials.
NEMA, however, noted that some of the bomb victims would be taken to the National Hospital Abuja for further treatment.
