Boko Haram: U.S. assures IDPs of commitment to safe return home

(Irin News)

The U.S. Permanent Representatives to the United Nations, Amb. Samantha Power, has assured Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North-East of U.S. commitment to addressing Boko Haram Insurgency for their safe return home.

Power gave the assurance on Friday in Yola while addressing IDPs at the Malkohi Camp, Yola.

"I am representing President Obama; he has sent me and a powerful delegation to come and see what we can do to fight Boko Haram so that you can return home.

"I give you my condolence for all you have lost and our resolve to try and make things better together," Power said.

Power said that American Government appreciated the difficulties of the IDPs who were forced to stay in camps, and that she was at the camp to identify with them

Receiving the ambassador, the Adamawa NEMA Coordinator, Mr Sa'ad Bello, said most of the IDPs had returned home because of the recovery of their territories from the terrorists.

He, however, disclosed that there were over 50, 000 IDPs being expected from the neighbouring Cameroon.

Power and her entourage were taken round to see some of the products produced by women that underwent skills acquisition training at the camp.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Power also visited a nearby IDPs settlement where she interact with the IDPs.
