Yobe averts terror attack at IDPS camp

26 October 2015, 07:45Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Yobe State Government has confirmed the arrest of four alleged insurgents who attempted to enter the Pompomari Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Damaturu.

The Executive Secretary, Yobe State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Alhaji Musa Jidawa, said two suspects initially disguised as visitors to see relations at the camp.

Jidawa added that two others, who came separately later, were also arrested while trying to enter the camp.

“Security operatives and some IDPs screening entries and exit from the camp identified the suspects, who were later confirmed as insurgents by the IDPs from their communities,” Jidawa said.

He added that one of the suspects came to the camp where his family was taking refuge.

“A member of his Turo Kura village identified the suspect and raised an alarm, saying he belong to the sect and the suspect’s father, also an IDP at the camp, confirmed it, which led to his arrest,” Jidawa added.

Jidawa said the agency had reinforced security checks and means of identification to ensure that non-members do not slip into the camp.
