Owing to the complaints of inadequate feeding by internally displaced person, IDPs, in camps across Borno State, the Buhari Support Organisation, BSO, has called on the federal government to provide more food items to the camps.

The organisation’s state secretary, Muhammed Shettima Kuburi, , led a team to the camps where persons from Dikwa and Mafa local government areas are located to present relief items to them.

Kaburi condemned the banning of journalists from the camps, as journalists invited to witness the presentation were stopped at the gates of the camps on “orders from above.”
After the presentation, BOS director of finance, Muhammed Nuhu Idris, told journalists that the group’s gesture was in response to reports of poor hygiene in the camps, only for it to discover that the people are not being fed well.

“We brought these cartons of soaps, detergents and pomades to the IDPs because we have been receiving complaints on poor hygiene in the camps; but when we got here, we found out that there is even serious problems in the form of poor feeding of the IDPs,” Idris lamented.

“Most of them lamented barely eating once in a day. Many said they were being denied freedom to move out to the town to seek for means of sustenance,” he said.
