Mammoth crowd of IDPs from BAMA currently staged a forceful return back HOME. It can be recalled that BAMA was taken hostage by the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists exactly on 1st September 2014 killing thousands of people and rendered those of us alive displaced.
In the 3 years of our displacement, life has been so miserable, our people are been followed and killed even at the so called IDP camps, while others are artificially dying of disease, poverty and hunger. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
A Bama LGA resident shared this on his social media page
On a Very Sad Note;
Fiery looking security forces led by Borno state commissioner of police Mr. Damian Chukwu mounted blocks on our way to our home base BAMA, after spending 3 years as IDPs in various camps and locations within the state capital (Maiduguri) this afternoon.
The police commissioner while addressing us at the road blocks mounted by his operatives just a little drive after university of Maiduguri along Bama road, says “Allowing you to go to BAMA is like allowing you to commit suicide”. Thereafter he ordered his men to arrest whoever that insist to continue on the said journey.
Does that mean all the claims by both the military and the government on the improved security of the area is just a mere fallacy to deceive us? For how long can we be held refugees in our land? Any hope at sight?
