Breaking: IDPs Block Roads over Hunger

Reports just coming in say Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Maidugurl, Borno State, in their thousands have left their camps and poured unto the streets of the city and currently blocking the city’s main entry point, causing a gridlock along the Kano Maiduguri Expressway.
It was gathered that they are protesting against hunger and thirst in their camps.
“We are not fighting but fighting for our survival. The foods are not being supplied, there is no water. No medication for our sick kids; we want food or they should send back to our villages,” said an IDP who identified herself as Aisa from Marte.
“They don’t allow us to go out to beg. We are kept like prisoner without food, ” she was quoted as saying.
Security operatives are helpless as the IDPs, mostly women and children, refused to leave the highway.
The story is still developing as the time of filing this report.
