Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the Kuchingoro camp in Abuja say they are apprehensive about returning to the northeast despite the orders by the government.

The Deputy Chairman of the camp, Mr Haliru Bello, said that news from their various villages indicate that it is not yet safe to return home.

Mr Bello was speaking at a Valentine’s Day celebration on Sunday in the camp in the Federal Capital Territory, with well-meaning Nigerians who came to show them love.

One of the donors at the IDPs camp, Bunmi Ademolu, spoke on the reason for the celebration and the need for everyone to help the government cushion the effect of the insurgency on the Nigerians.

The group of the goodhearted Nigerians who made out time to visit the IDPs, brought with them clothing, shoes, household essentials and monetary gifts.

While appreciating the gesture by the group, the displaced persons said that items brought by well-meaning Nigerians have sustained them. (Channels TV)
