The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said on Sunday it had established seven new camps in Yola to accommodate Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the recent attacks in Mubi, Adamawa State.

Alhaji Muhammadu Kanar, its North-East Coordinator, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola, shortly after he distributed relief materials to no fewer than 3,000 IDPs at Daware camp in Fufore Local Government Area.

Kanar said that 10,000 IDPs were registered within the last two days adding that several thousands were still trooping into the camps.

He said the state government had provided over 100 vehicles to help evacuate those that were stranded in the bushes and highways after escaping the insurgents’ attacks in Mubi and Uba towns.

He said that President Goodluck Jonathan had directed the immediate release of thousands of tons of relief materials to be distributed to the IDPs to ease their suffering.

According to him, NEMA had been working with the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency to reach out to IDPs who escaped to Cameroon.

The District Head of Daware, Alhaji Muhammadu Iya, thanked the federal and state governments for their effort to reach out to the IDPs.

Iya advised government to organise a special prayer to seek the Almighty’s intervention toward ending the attacks pointing out that such divine intervention was the only permanent solution to the crisis.

NAN reports that among items distributed were assorted food items, blankets, detergents, mats, mosquito nets and drugs. (NAN)
