The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA IDPs camps coordinator, Alhaji Sa’adu Bello has debunked the allegation that some of his agency officials are diverting food stuffs and other daily utilities being provided for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs in Adamawa State.

The coordinator made the rebuttal in an interactive session with journalist in Yola yesterday stressing that there is no way food stuffs can be shared in the camps for individual’s talk less of diverting it to personal interest as all food items are being cooked and shared centrally at various camps in the state.

Bello explained further that only IDPs being hosted by Good Samaritan in communities are treated specially on monthly, or in some cases in three months and their treatment is been watched carefully to avoid double ratio considerations.

He therefore appeal to journalists to verify their facts before going to the press so that wrong information should not be given to the public.

Answering a question on the ongoing mass deportation of Nigerian refugees from Cameroon Republic, Bello said 1000 have been received in Yola and 2000 are in Mubi and were been communicated by the department of Nigerian Immigration Services.

Continuing he said six hundred have since been relocated to their various homes in neighboring Borno state while about 2000 would be received in Adamawa State on Saturday and that all necessary arrangement have been concluded saying that some will be taken to Fufore IDPs camp and some to Malkohi IDPs camp respectively.

He therefore appealed for support and corporation from all and sundry.
