The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has donated medical supplies and three plastic water tanks to Internally Displaced Persons presently being cared for at the International Christian Mission camp in Uhogua village, Ovia North East local government area of Edo state.



    Arase who was represented at the presentation ceremony by the Force Medical Officer, Grace Okudo, an assistant inspector general, promised the IDPs who were mostly children they would not lack anything, just as he assured them that adequate security would be provided for them.

    “We will do our best for you. We know many diseases can be caused by bad water, so we brought these Geepee tanks. You will not miss anything. Our team from Asaba and Benin will be visiting to know your needs particularly as regards your health issues. We will be coming always to see what we can do,” he promised.

    Founder of the International Christian Mission, Solomon Folorunsho, thanked the police boss for his concern and timely medical intervention.

    It would be recalled that a total of 142 of the internally displaced persons, numbering about 900, that were brought to the camp were reunited with their families two weeks ago.
