Nigeria: 55000 Displaced in Adamawa, Borno, Yobe – NEMA

Maiduguri — The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) yesterday said it has so far registered over 55,000 displaced people in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States as a result of the Boko Haram crisis in the last few weeks.

Information officer of the agency in the North-east, Abdulkadir Ibrahim, told newsmen in Maiduguri that due to fear of attacks, more people were fleeing their homes in villages around Maiduguri. He said they are trooping to the state capital in search of safety while many others in the southern part of the state are moving to major towns in Adamawa State.

He said as a result of the attacks in Bama, Konduga, Kawuri, Mafa, Mainok, Jakana and other villages, many families had fled. Ibrahim said at various times, NEMA had assisted the victims with food, mattresses, blankets and toiletries.
