In his remarks, the Chief of Wasagu, Alhaji Musa Mukhtar, pleaded with the government to mobilise more personnel to the area in order to provide adequate security for the IDPs to return to their homes.

“Our people are hardworking and resilient; what they need is not relief assistance, but security to go back home and cultivate their farms.

Mukhtar appreciated the myriad of intervention and assistance from the state government to the people of the area since the security crises started.
