IDP Camp

The Isu community in Arochukwu council area of Abia State has sent a save our soul message to the National Emergency Relief Agency to fulfill its promise of sending relief materials to the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camp in the area.

The Isu community has been enmeshed in a boundary war with their Utuma neighbours in Biase council area of Cross River State.

President General, Isu Progressive Union, IPU, Elder Felix Okoro, who made the call in an interview with Newsmen, lamented that the community spends about N2 million monthly to take care of the IDPs and could no longer bear the burden.

Okoro noted that NEMA had visited the over 3,500 IDPs at the Ohabuike Primary School and promised to send relief materials to assist them, but was yet to fulfill its pledge despite efforts by the community.

He commended the Abia State government, the member representing Arochukwu State Constituency in the state Assembly, Hon. Mike Ukoha as well as public-spirited individuals for their support to the community.
