Thousands relocated as Borno schools reopen

23 February 2016, 17:06Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Some 4 500 internally displaced persons (IDP) have been relocated to established IDP camps since the recent reopening of schools that had been shut owing to the Boko Haram terror in Borno State.

The schools had been closed for almost  two years but reopened after the army reclaimed territories the insurgents had taken over at the height of terrorism.

Commissioner of Education and State’s Relocation Committee Chairman, Alhaji Musa Inuwa Kubo, said some of the existing IDP camps were located in public schools.

The government had last week commenced the relocation with an initial 600 IDPs from Government Girls Secondary School, Yerwa in Maiduguri were moved to Dalori camps where many families were reunited.

However, most have relocated from school premises to Bakassi IDPs camp located along Biu-Daboa Road in Maiduguri.

He said the conditions were adequate at the facility.

“I have already addressed the IDPs on their relocation from school premises to a camp at Bakassi Housing Estate. In the camp, there is adequate water supply, there are toilets; and we have also collaborated with the military and other security agencies for a smooth relocation exercise that had been delayed for over two months,” Kubo told media in Maiduguri.

Borno is the state hardest hit by the terror insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives and displaced over 2 million. – CAJ News
