Borno state Government on Thursday resumed the evacuation of its remaining indigenes staying in Fufore, Damare and Malkohi IDP camps in Adamawa state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the displaced persons were mostly from Kala-Balge and Gamboru-Ngala local governments areas of Borno, who were forced to take refuge in Cameroon as a result of attacks by insurgents, before their repatriation to Nigeria.

Addressing the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Fufore camp, the chairman of Gamboru-Ngala Local Government Council, Alhaji Abdulrahaman Abdulkarim, lauded the IDPs for their patience and assured them that within few days, they would all be evacuated to Maiduguri.

Abdulkarim lauded the effort of the military in recapturing Gamboru, and assured the IDPs that as soon as the necessary mopping of and fumigation of the area were concluded, they would be allowed to go to their respective villages.

He also lauded NEMA, Red Cross and other national and international organisations, for their effort in catering for the IDPs since the crisis started.

Also speaking, the Borno state Liaison Officer in charge of IDPs, Alhaji Aliyu Yerima, said so far, over 6000 had been evacuated to Maiduguri before the suspension of the exercise due to Eid El Kabir break.

In his remark, Mr. Saad Bello, the NEMA camp coordinator, said a total of 1, 400 IDPs had so far been cleared for evacuation to Maiduguri.

“We have screened them and the security personnel also screened them, to ensure that there are no Boko Haram members or weapons in their belongings.”

Many of the IDPs who spoke, expressed their excitement and readiness to go home.

Modu Abubakar, one of the IDPs, said: “I am happy that I will be going to Maiduguri today. And by the grace of God, I hope to proceed to Gamboru from Maiduguri as soon as the military give us the go ahead, as explained by our local government chairman, who just addressed us.”(NAN)
