Ibrahim said many more people were likely to find their way into the town, stating that 2 000 persons arrived Maiduguri on Sunday with the rest arriving on Monday.

"At the moment we have registered the 5 000 persons and we are expecting more, we have put the needed materials that we make them settle to their lives at the camp".

He disclosed that the housing estate the government donated was along Gubio road at the outskirts of Maiduguri. - CAJ News
