From Tom Garba, Yola
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Coordinator of internally displaced peoples (IDP) camps in Adamawa State, Alhaji Sa’adu Bello, has debunked allegations that some of his agency officials were diverting foodstuff and other relief materials being provided IDPs in the state.
The coordinator made the rebuttal in an interactive session with journalists in Yola yesterday, stressing that there is no way foodstuff can be shared in the camps for individual’s talk less of diverting it to personal interest as all food items are being cooked and shared centrally at various camps in the state.
Bello further explained that only IDPs being hosted by Good Samaritans in communities were treated specially on monthly basis, or in some cases in three months and their treatment is been watched carefully to avoid double ration considerations.
He therefore appeal to journalists to verify their facts before going to the press so that wrong information would not be given to the public.
Answering a question on the ongoing mass deportation of Nigerian refugees from Cameroun, Bello said 1,000 have been received in Yola and 2,000 were in Mubi.
Continuing, he said 600 have since been relocated to their various homes in neighbouring Borno State while about 2,000 would be received in Adamawa State on Saturday, adding that all necessary arrangements have been concluded to take them to either the Fufore or Malkohi IDP camps.
He therefore appealed for support and cooperation from all and sundry.
