The Deputy Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Zanna Mustapha has urged returning Borno refugees from Cameroon to “identify and expose” any suspecting terror suspect among them.
Mustapha gave the advice at the weekend, while addressing 12,000 returning refugees from Cameroon at Mubi IDPs camp.
His words: “Now that all of you here before us have arrived Nigerian soil safely through the Sahuda border post of Cameroon, our main concern is your security and that of your towns and villages in Gambouru, Ngala and Bama”.
The Director General of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Alhaji Sani Sidi, who led the Federal Government delegation to receive
the refugees said that the remaining refugees were to be moved to designated IDPs camps in Yola.
“We are here in Mubi town to officially receive these teeming refugees from Cameroon, assess their individual health conditions and provide them with basic needs of life, while in camps, before they return to their respective communities”, said Sidi yesterday in Mubi.
He, however, noted: “While in the camps, you will undergo screenings in order to identify the areas where you come from before you are moved to
safer resettlement camps in Maiduguri, Yola and other designated camps not very far away from your towns and villages in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states”.
