Since Boko Haram started its acts of terror in Nigeria, more than 2 million people have been displaced, many of them in the northeastern states of Borno and Adamawa.
And now the Adamawa State government has closed the Bajambure Internally Displaced persons camp to make space for the National Youth Service Corps orientation camp scheduled to open in June.
The National Youth Service Corps permanent orientation camp in Damanre is one of the three official IDP camps hosting those from Gwoza, Chibok and Madagali. But Adamawa state government has closed it to accommodate the next NYSC exercise in June.
Speaking on the development, Executive Secretary of the state Emergency
Management Agency, Hamma Furo said the state’s decision was taken in good faith.
He posited that the rights of the IDPs were not violated during the exercise.
