Battle For Bama: 26,391 Civilians Flee To Maiduguri NEMA

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) yesterday disclosed that 26,391 people have been sacked from their homes in Bama, Borno State, following Mondays fierce battle between military forces and Boko Haram insurgents.
The North-East Information Officer of the agency, Abdulkadir Ibrahim, said though the displaced Bama residents were still fleeing to Maiduguri, NEMA had so far placed 26,391 civilians in two Internally Displaced Persons camps (IDPs) within the state capital.
Ibrahim added that the agency had started making arrangements to ensure that the displaced persons were provided with adequate relief materials.
