13 July 2015, 11:43Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Thousands of refugees displaced by the Boko Haram terror in Borno and Yobe States have received a major boost after  the International Centre for Islamic Culture and Education (ICICE) donated of food and non-food items valued at about N9 million.

The Director of the Abuja-based centre, Mallam Mele Kyari, said the visits to the many registered and unregistered camps in both states had alerted them to the pathetic situation at the camp housing the refugees.

“We have several children who have lost their parents to this crisis and if everyone of us do not do something urgently to solve this crisis and find something for these children, they may have a worse crisis than Boko Haram insurgency in years to come,” Kyari said

He noted that the Boko Haram crisis went beyond the Northeast but was a national and West African sub regional crisis.

“If not handled well now, the crisis may take a dangerous dimension in the not too distant future,” said Kyari.

Borno and Yobe are among the states worst affected by the Boko Haram crisis that has left some 13 000 people dead and about 2 million displaced.
