Abuja - The Borno State Government has procured more metal scanners for all internally displaced camps in Maiduguri, the state capital.
According to a senior government officials, this is in reaction to the recent foiled bomb attack at one of the camps.
Chairman of Borno State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Alhaji Grema Terab, expressed sorrow at the attempt.
“These are people who have lost almost everything they had and are depending on government for the basics of life, what could they have done that after all the losses, someone is still interested in sending them to an early grave,” he said.
Terab added that the state government had moved to buy more metal scanners which would be distributed to all IDPs camps in the state to forestall any future attack.

He said the purchase had been concluded and that the delivery will be made later in the week.
He assured the displaced people there was no cause for panic as the security at the camps had been further beefed up with more security measures and guides on watch.
“We have at the camps many security details and it would be hard for any security breach. The last Saturday foiled attack has further woken up all security operatives and has gone a long way to make us add more security checks,” Terab said.
