Triggered by acute hunger and apparent neglect by government officials, no fewer than 500 Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, Thursday, took to the streets to protest against hunger and thirst in their respective camps.

Mostly women and children, the visibly-angry IDPs barricaded the city's main entry point, causing a gridlock along the Kano-Maiduguri highway.

Security operatives seemed helpless as the IDPs refused to leave the highway.
