Some internally displaced persons, IDPs, from the North-East residing in a camp in Jos, the Plateau State, have been given notice to leave.
The over 207 children in the camp mostly lost their parents in the wake of Boko Haram insurgency and are being sheltered by the House of Recab around Liberty Boulevard.
The general overseer of the camp, Sam Akawuka, speaking when a foundation for empowering children known as Greater Tomorrow Children Fund visited the IDPs, expressed worry over the threat to sack them from the camp. He said the owner of the property had asked them to either buy it for N60 million or quit before the end of December.
Akawuka called on government and individuals to make their contributions so that the IDPs could continue to live in the camp.
While presenting its relief materials, the founder of Greater Tomorrow Children, Paul Okoku urged the Plateau State government and well-meaning individuals to assist the children.
