Adamawa State Governor Bala Ngilari being sworn in.

The Adamawa state governor, Bala Ngilari, said a high powered committee had been inaugurated to address the problems confronting internally displaced persons, IDPs, due to the recent attack on Mubi town by members of Boko Haram sect.

He added that he had sent 77 vehicles in the past two days to evacuate the affected persons to designated camps.

Mr. Ngilari made the announcement in a state-wide broadcast in Yola on Saturday.

He explained that the purpose was to keep the displaced persons out of harm’s way and to be resettled in camps in suitable locations.

He said government would continue to do all it could in providing basic necessities to the displaced persons until they were reunited with their families.

“I have also been in touch with the President and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to address the issue of our citizens who are now refugees in Cameroon,” he said.

“Some displaced citizens are in Cameroon suffering untold hardship. I wish to reassure the good people of the state that I am doing all I can to address this situation.”

He advised the IDPs who were staying with their relatives to ensure that they were registered at the designated camps.

He called on people of the state and the country at large to pray to God to take away the scourge of insurgency and restore peace and tranquility to Nigeria.

The governor called on national and international agencies to come to the aid of the state “as the meagre resources we have cannot meet the myriads of needs posed by this problem.

  • Otile

    But our troops did not admit that Boko Haram captured Mubi, so what is Alhaji Audu Ngilara telling us now?

  • What can we really do to change the following situations in Nigeria? I doubt if
    these comments reach those they are intended for. I don’t want my
    comments to be in vain.
    —————————-
    Why is Nigeria allowing Sharia in Northern Nigeria? That’s the LICENSE that
    opens the gate for those who are faithful to Qur’an and Hadith to
    establish Ummah al-Islamiyah in Nigeria and EXPAND SHARIA.

    Concerning “touch not the anointed”, please send the following IMPORTANT MESSAGE
    to all who can do something about it:

    Like the U.K. Charity Commission, Nigeria needs to start prosecuting
    Religious Fraudsters. Also, Nigerian Officials must stop mixing Government with Religion.

  • Spoken word

    Na so so committee. When will our government ever be proactive and not act after events have happened.
