A Pastor with the Governors Assembly and Coordinator, Nehemiah Camp, Pastor Gideon Mutum, has lamented the influx of internally Displace Persons, IDPs, in Southern Kaduna following recent crisis in the area.
Pastor Mutum solicited the support of individuals and government to ease the plight of the displaced persons where they are currently camping.
Speaking at the Model Primary School Takau, Jema’a local government area, immediately he received another 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 God grace, we have more than 2,233 IDPs,” he said.
The clergy said they have 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.
