BBOGThe BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group has raised the alarm over the deplorable humanitarian conditions in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps and settlements in the Federal Capital Territory and other states.

Addressing journalists on the #BBOGCountdownToMay 29 intiative, co-convener of the group, Aisha Yesufu, who read the statement signed by the leader of the group, former Education Minister, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, stated that there have been reports of the dearth of basic amenities like food, water and shelter in IDP camps and reminded the government that its responsibility does not stop at rescuing citizens from terror as it also includes protecting and taking care of them.

“This highlights the gap in the management of the welfare of innocent citizens who have been forced out of their homes and communities in the Northeast by insurgents.

“There are still many more camps and settlements in and around the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nasarawa, Bauchi, Taraba and Gombe states. We reiterate that the responsibility of government does not stop at rescuing citizens from terror. Nigeria must protect the dignity of vulnerable citizens and victims of terror”, she said.

Meanwhile, the BBOG group has commended residents of Potiskum in Yobe State for their vigilance and for acting proactively when two terrorists attacked the College of Administration and Business Studies, Potiskum.

It urged Nigerian citizens to always take responsibility for their security and cooperate with the security forces for best results.

“Two terrorists attacked College of Administration and Business Studies, Potiskum on Friday, May 8. One of them, a suicide bomber, detonated a bomb at the car park and died in the process. The other, a gunman, was apprehended and handed over to the police. A few students were wounded by gunshots while trying to escape. Happily, there were no fatalities this time”, the group said.
