Internally Displaced Persons in their hundreds left their camps and took to the streets yesterday 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.

“We are not fighting but fighting for our survival. The foods are not being supplied, there is no water. No medication for our sick kids; we want food or they should send back to our villages,” said an IDP who identified herself as Aisa from Marte.

“They don’t allow us to go out to beg. We are kept like prisoner without food….”, she said.

No government official has addressed the protesters yet.
