25 women give birth at Yola Displaced Persons Camp

At least 25 pregnant women have given birth at the camp for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Yola, the Adamawa state capital.

There are also about 20 pregnant women in camp, the North East coordinator of National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Muhammad Kanar, has said.

He said some of the IDPs are being catered for in camps around Yola, like the National Youth Service Camp, while others are in communities scattered across the state capital.

“These IDPs, who were mainly from villages and towns in the North-Eastern part of the Country, such as Gwoza, Madagalli, Mubi, Michika, in both Borno and Adamawa States, where the crisis has been most severe, gave harrowing narrations of their experiences while fleeing from the insurgents, leaving behind their homes, sources of livelihood, as well as family members.

“Their accounts were sources of inspiration, as their will to survive and be re-united with their families were heart-warming and sad at the same time. Some of these victims had gone through thick forests, mountainous terrains, and even crossed borders to neighbouring Countries like Cameroon, all on foot, before travelling down to the Camps,” Mr. Kanar noted.

He stressed the need for the rich and other cooperate organizations to come to the aid of the displaced persons.

“While in the camps, they only experience brief relief and succor from the long and strenuous journey. As the after-thought of their situation, and realization of the fact that they have no homes anymore, or family members have departed their sides through death sets in, they become depressed and despondent.

“Though NEMA, and other relevant agencies are doing their best, they are in dire need of assistance,” Mr. Kanar said.

Ummah Charity, a subsidiary of Ummah Islamic Organization, a Non-Governmental Organization, NGO, based in Abuja, Nigeria’s Capital City, visited the displaced persons and other victims of insurgency in
Yola.

In his remarks, Abubakar Muhammad, the president of the group said that the Ummah Charity was set up by the Ummah Islamic Organization Executives in July 2014 to provide humanitarian aid and assistance to the less privileged and those in emergency or crisis areas, regardless of their religious, regional or tribal affiliations.

He said that Ummah Charity also embarked on other projects such as providing free educational scholarships to 23 bright and intelligent children from extremely poor homes to support their education.

    This sounds like baby factory to me. You mean that Northerners are doing sex inside the shelter camps. God save us.

    • Abubakar Muhammad

      These women were pregnant before their towns and communities were attacked by the insurgents. They escaped with nothing except the clothes on their backs, and hope for a better situation. The fact that they found themselves giving birth in the camps, in the most deplorable circumstances, was a choice in which they had no option. For you to try to downplay or ridicule their situation is unfortunate, and shows a lack of compassion on your part.

      • Otile

        I am sure nobody had compassion on Igbo women raped and slaughtered in the North and thugs pursued them to Igboland and made war on them then. Remember karma.

        • Abubakar Muhammad

          Two wrongs don’t make a right Otile. The Civil War was a disaster. The images of the men, women and children who suffered during that period is devastating. And believe me when i say that the same compassion I feel now for the people of the North, is the same compassion I feel for my brothers and sisters in Igboland who witnessed and experienced the Civil War. This Country has gone through so much, but what will destroy us faster than all we’ve faced, is when Compassion is taken away from our hearts due to hatred for a particular Tribe, Region or Religion. What is going today isn’t Karma, but an evil attempt to further tear us apart.

          • Otile

            I can see that you are a good man. If others had the kind mind you and I have maybe Nigeria would be saved. God bless you Abubakar.

          • Abubakar Muhammad

            And you too. I believe we can make a difference. We just need to channel our energy to what will bring positive results.

          • Otile

            Accepted

  • Darlington

    Femi, God will keep strengthening you for standing up for truth and justice.

  • Martins

    I must admit that Femi has made sense today. The questions posed to the DSS were the same I had tendered on another platform. This open bias from a federal funded agency is shameful and totally unacceptable. The current head of DSS should remember how the reign of his predecessor ended along with the famous Miss Ogar. Nothing lasts for every.

  • Lewis Amarato

    Very disturbing scenario unfolding in Nigeria. FFK has written another eye-opener. Great stuff amd kudos to the author!

  • Ade

    God bless you and protect you Femi for speaking out fearlessly.

  • Sir Louis

    All thinking men, and all men who have read history or have a sense of history must read and make sense of this article. Nigeria is in trouble if reasonable men among us do not take action. Fani Kayode, this article is fantastic and a timely warning. Hope the Oga at DSS and his men will read and comprehend. They do not have a mandate to set Nigerians against one another! Let them retrace their steps!

    • Abdulkadir

      Only people without any sense of history will see anything reasonable in this piece. First, to weep up sentiments, the writer lied against the DSS. The DSS never said more than five Fulani were killed, rather they insinuated others whose tribal identity is not verified are also killed and buried in addition to the five Fulani whose identity has been verified. The import of the information cannot be lost on sound minds, obviously not the minds with this writers immaturity. DSS is holding IPOB leader in their custody and they have evidence suggesting the IPOB leader had instructed his followers to inflict harm, or even kill non indigenous people to Biafra, especially northerners. They had held that IPOB is a violent organisation the proof of which is what they have told the world which have come to think, rightly or wrongly, that Kanu is being persecuted. The logic is simple.

      But what will this victim of substance abuse try to do? He deliberately misinform, and tried to instigate tribal hatred, with a view to causing inter-tribal disharmony which may lead to chaos and ultimately violence. Violence is not the main agenda. The agenda is to create chaos so big that the government of PMB would appear to be ineffective, which may pave the way for a return of the Treasury looting, Bokoharam sponsoring, impunity reloaded PDP.

    once again, only persons from the Yoruba ethnic group will speak up. also the brave member representing Abraka in the Delta State house of assembly. even Adam Oshiomole of Edo State has spoken up. why the silence to the east of Edo State? where are the house of reps members, senators, governors, religious leaders from the south south, south east, south west and middle belt?
    how long shall we continue to hold ourselves in contempt to our detriment?
    according to Lord Lugard, the African never learns from history.
    Buhari unilaterally signed Nigeria into the Saudi led so called terror fighting organisation.
    he did not consult our pastor brethren Osinbajo nor our general overseer Adeboye!
    neither did he consult the national assembly.
    if it was GEJ, we would have all foolishly joined in calling for his head!
    we are the ones who stoke the fire that is smoking our eyes, until we repent of our selfish arrogant egoistic ways, we will continue to suffer in the hands of Buhari and his band of janjaweeed rapist and murderers.

    • Outraged

      Shut up your mouth. Fani Kayode is a drug addict. Is it because he was fucking Bianca? Yorubas have always been brave. You are a small boy. Go and read your history. Yoruba has always been in the opposition since independence. They fought the military and forced them out. Since 1999, Yorubas led the oppositon while your Igbo brothers were feeding off crumbs from the FG. Mumu

      • Chain Jee

        oh i see your problem. he is fucking your sister Bianca and enjoying her sweet pussy and you are hurting. Osinbajo your pastor is mere errand boy and a nobody. Kwakwanso came to your village to warn you after you protested the kidnap of Olu falae, and followed with the burning of your brothers in mile 12 last month. you and your cowardly people kept quiet, and afraid to speak lest your fulani masters deal with you. your elders shamelessly confessed that 6 out 10 children born in many parts of Oyo and Ogun states to yoruba women are rape children. fulanis rape your wives, sisters, mothers as they like. you people are just too impotent.
        death is better than the cowardly life you lead.
        so my dear go live your dreary life in shame.

  • Outraged

    Solutions, solutions, solutions, not fear mongering. Jonathan was there for six years and failed to restructure the country. Thats what you get when you have an ediot as leader. As for FFK no one takes him seriously. Is he not the same guy that was fucking bianca Ojukwu when the guy was in exile?

  • Cadmus VOY

    Nice piece FFK Nigeria is indeed at the verge of disintegration if proper care is not taken we will wake up one morning to see that the nation has been divided. My prayers will that it was done amicably and peacefully with blood shed. from the look of things Nigerians are no longer smiling with the economic crisis at hand yet those in power are traveling all around the world rather than finding a long lasting solutions to the problems facing the nation. my God help us all in Nigeria.

  • Eno Udofa

    Thank you for the write up. I do share your opinion. While it is sad that in a country of such highly educated people many choose to shut out themselves from the facts because of sentiments. This is the reality which faces us at present. Inevitable? No. But but very likely. Although, I have heard of the unpleasant stories of war, the path we are trading may lead us it. No people remain suppressed forever. We will grow or go.

  • Etomi

    God bless FFK always!!!!!!!
