Over 600 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been relocated from schools to permanent resettlement camps across Maiduguri, the state capital.
The decision followed the state government’s plans to open public schools in the metropolis which have been closed for nearly two years.
The government on Wednesday finally relocated over 600 displaced persons at Government Girls’ Secondary School, Yerwa, to the Dalori Resettlement camp.
The relocation of displaced persons, according to the state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Musa Inuwa Kubo, had been postponed at least four times previously before the government decided it can no longer wait on the relocation of the IDPs.
“We thank God, it is a reality to reopen our schools that were closed down for over a year now. We are conveying this morning 602 IDPs to Dalori camp with their families. We have assured the people that the government will take care of the basic needs of the displaced persons,” the commissioner stated.
