Over 40,000 persons have been displaced following the recent gunmen attack in Guma and Logo Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state.
The Executive Secretary of SEMA, Mr Emmanuel Shior confirmed this to newsmen in Makurdi on Friday.
Shior disclosed that the agency had opened four camps for the displaced persons in the affected areas under instruction of Gov. Samuel Ortom.
He noted that most IDPs were farmers, assuring them of maximum support from government and its agency to do everything possible to give them minimum comfort.
“As we speak, over 40,000 persons have so far been displaced as a result of the attacks on our people in Guma and Logo LGAs.
“Government has decided to open four camps, three in Guma LGA and one in Logo LGA, the camps in Guma LGA are in Daudu, Gbajimba and Agasha, while the camp in Logo LGA is in Ugba.
“The camps are in areas that are safe and enough security has being provided for the safety of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
“What we are doing at the moment is to open temporary camps except the one in Daudu that already has existing camp facilities, the others camps are situated in primary schools located in the areas.
“We do not hope to keep them in the camps for a long time, remember this is January and most of the affected persons are farmers who are still harvesting their crops,” he said.
“The government is concerned about the security of the people and their communities to enable them to return back to their homes instead of staying in the camps,” he said.
