DAILY POST gathered that over 3,000 persons displaced from Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States over the activities of Boko Haram insurgents and bandits are currently living in the camp.

The chairman of the camp, Mr Umaru Gola told DAILY POST that the condition of living in the camp is currently unbearable, describing it as inhumane.

He said:

“Everybody has been left to face his or her fate. We are alive till today by the grace of God and the help of some good spirited Nigerians who come once in a while to donate items to the displaced persons”.

According to the Chairman, they bury members of the camp on a weekly basis following hunger, and curable diseases, stressing that, “the young men among us are the ones trying to help us in most cases.

“They go out daily and engage in activities like commercial motorcycling just to help the situation but we bury some of them like twice in a week or sometimes once in a month due to road accidents”.

When asked how they access medical facilities in the camp, Mr Umaru said they were offered free medical care by a government agency, lamenting that the agency stopped two years ago.

“Since about two years ago, we have been left to struggle on our own, most times, when there is a health challenge that is beyond us, we go to churches and mosques to beg for assistance.
