Adamawa begins closure of IDP camps

Adamawa State Government has disclosed that it will close all Internally Displaced Persons’ camps in the state within a month.

Deputy Governor, Martins Babale, spoke on Wednesday in Yola while briefing newsmen on the outcome of a State Security Council meeting.

Babale said the administration was not happy with the continuous existence of IDPs camps across the state.

His words: “We will take steps, including encouraging them to settle in villages; we will collaborate with all stakeholders to make sure that between now and January 30, everyone has left the camps”.

Babale, who doubles as Chairman of the State Emergency Management Agency, said the continuous stay of IDPs in the camps when all parts of the state affected by the insurgency had been recovered was affecting the image of the state.

Meanwhile, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mallam Ahmad Sajoh, said the meeting amdorsed massive enlightenment of the public to be vigilant and be on alert to report insurgents fleeing from the Sambisa Forest.

The commissioner said government would collaborate with organisations like the National Union of Road Transport Workers in tracking such fleeing insurgents.
