The Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Umar Garbai El-Kanemi, yesterday, urged the Federal Government to return Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in camps to military liberated communities in the state.
The royal father made the call when the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadiq Baba Abubakar, paid a courtesy visit to his palace in Maiduguri. He said peace had returned to 22 insurgency affected local government areas in the state.
Garbai El-Kanemi also said as peace had returned to the insurgency affected council areas of Borno State, the over two million IDPs in various camps of Maiduguri and Biu, are “eager to go back” to their respective liberated towns and villages.
In his response, Air Marshal Abubakar assured the monarch that the military would not fail the people of Borno State on the restoration of peace. He said this would enable all the displaced persons in various resettlement camps return to their respective communities, within the shortest possible period of time.
