YOLA – Following the insurgent attacks on Mubi, Adamawa, the National Emergency Management Agency ( NEMA) has concluded arrangements to open more camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Yola.
Malam Sani Datti, the agency’s spokesperson, said disclosed the plan in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Friday.
Datti said that the plan was in response to the rising number of IDPs from Mubi town and other communities in Adamawa, adding that many residents from Mubi and Uba had fled to Yola following the attacks.
He said that the Director-General of NEMA, Alhaji Muhammad Sani-Sidi, had dispatched Search and Rescue teams to Adamawa to help.
“The team is to assess and provide additional camps for emergency relief,” Datti said, adding that staff of the North-East Zonal office of NEMA would move to Yola to cater for the affected. (NAN)
