About two million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are presently in 27 camps in Benue State, the Executive Secretary, Benue State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Dr. Emmanuel Shior has said.
The SEMA Executive Secretary, Dr. Emmanuel Shior, while flagging-off the months’ distribution of relief materials to the IDPs in Makurdi, explained that the camps were made up of seven official and 20 unofficial camps scattered across the State.
According to Shior, the monthly food distribution exercise was delayed due to logistical challenges, saying that the State government, though overstretched by the magnitude of the humanitarian challenge in the State, would continue to provide for the IDPs.
The Executive abandon the people in their time of need.
