Officials of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Monday commiserated with the victims of the Malkohi bomb blast currently receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, Yola with an assurance of tight security around all Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps across the country.
Director General of the agency, Mallam Sani Sidi, who gave the assurance during the visit to the Malkohi camp, promised the displaced persons from Borno State that the Federal Government would ensure that they were evacuated back to their state in no distant future.
He noted that his organization was working with security agencies to increase the presence of security personnel around all IDP camps across the region to ensure security of inhabitants.
Sidi noted that as a last resort, Boko Haram whose fighting power has been seriously degraded, will take to guerrilla fighting and bombing of soft targets urging the inmates of the IDP camps across the region to be more vigilant and report suspicious movements and persons to the security operatives.
He told the IDPs at Malkohi camp that enough drugs would be provided for them, noting that NEMA has entered an agreement with two hospitals in the state capital to provide medical care to IDPs.
Deputy Governor of Adamawa State Mr. Martins Babale, said the security agents need to screen all the IDPs deported by Cameroon to the country to avoid reoccurrence of suicide attacks witnessed at the Madagali Market and Makohi IDPs camp.
Commissioner of information in the state, Comrade Ahmed Sajoh, receiving the NEMA DG on behalf of the state government, said that Governor Jibrilla Bindow would not relent to make the state safer for the IDPs.
Sajoh added that the state government will provide lights across IDP camps in the state to enhance security across all the facilities.
