Police trail more killers of Borno refugee

08 January 2016, 14:06

Borno - Borno State Government has denounced violence among internally displaced persons (IDPs) at refugee camps.

This follows the death of a refugee at an IDPs camp in Maiduguri.

Investigations have so far pointed at a disagreement between a group of youths who later conspired and attacked the victim.

Isa Gusau, spokesperson to Governor Kashim Shettima, condemned the incident.

“Government will never accept threats in any IDP camp where citizens already suffer the trauma of being displaced as a result of insurgency attacks,” said Gusau.

Gusau said Shettima received with utter shock and sadness information concerning the murder of the refugee whose body was found at the Shettima Ali Monguno Teachers Village ‎camp on Thursday.

The Executive Chairman of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Engineer Garba Satomi, confirmed police had arrested a displaced person in connection with the attack.

He said police were trailing more suspects.

The fully fenced camp, located at Pompamari, near the headquarters of the Seven Division of the Nigerian Army, hosts some 13 000 displaced persons from Ngala and Kukawa local government areas.
