 OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE ASSURES THAT ALL IDP CAMPS WOULD SOON BE CLOSED TO ALLOW OCCUPANTS RETURN HOME

 

The Theatre Commander of the Operation Lafiya Dole, Major-General IBRAHIM ATTAHIRU has assured that all Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North-east region would soon return to their communities.

He stated this during a media briefing held at the Maimalari barracks in Maiduguri on Wednesday, to update the public on the activities of troops in the region.

General ATTAHIRU, who disclosed that all IDPs camps in Yobe State have been closed, assured that displaced persons in Borno and Adamawa States would also follow suit once their communities are fully secured through ongoing military operations.

On the fate of some lecturers at University of Maiduguri and NNPC staff abducted by suspected Boko Haram insurgents during an oil exploration exercise in Borno, last August, the Theatre Commander revealed that efforts were still ongoing to secure them alive.
