Boko Haram: 138 Displaced Children Yet To Reconnect With Their Parents, Says NEMA


Agabus Pwanagba, Jos – Following Boko Haram attacks in Northern Senatorial District of Adamawa State, at least 138 displaced children are yet to be reconnected with their parents.

The National Emergency Management Agency; NEMA disclosed this on Thursday in a chat with journalists, through the coordinating officer of the IDP camps, Sa’ad Bello in Yola on Thursday.

The children are now in the five designated Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps in the state capital, Yola.

He said so far only seven of the children had been linked with their parents or relations.

“We had about 138 unaccompanied children as at last Friday,” Mr. Bello said. “So far we have reunited seven children with their relations with the help of the International Committee for Red Cross and Red Crescent.

He expressed optimism that with residents returning to the recaptured towns of Mubi, Maiha, Gombi and Hong, there would be more reunions.

“Already there is fear that some of those unaccompanied children might have lost their parents during the insurgents attack on their villages.” he stressed.
