A pastor with the Governors Assembly and coordinator, Nehemiah Camp, Pastor Gideon Mutum, has lamented the influx of Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Southern Kaduna following recent attacks in the area, according to a Daily Post report.
Pastor Mutum solicited the support of individuals and government to ease the plight of the displaced persons.
Speaking Saturday at the Model Primary School Takau, Jema’a local government area, immediately after he received another batch of 1,000
IDPs apart from the 1,234 IDPs in his camp, he noted that the situation was alarming if not checked.
“The camp started over three months ago following the unprovoked and systematic attacks that has been bedeviling Southern Kaduna.
“In this camp, we have seen three ladies that alighted from a vehicle half naked because they were in a bathroom when the attackers struck.
“The camp started with about 40 people when I confronted my wife on what we should do to help the victims of these attacks and by the God grace, we have more than 2,233 IDPs,” he said.
The clergy man said they had not received any assistance from government, adding that the local government sent a delegation of six people to verify the number of the people that were in the camp.
“The camp has victims from Pasakori, Ungwan Anjo, Godogodo, Goska, Ninte, Golkofa, among many other communities that suffered the same attacks,” he lamented.
