Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu has urged Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Mahuta and Isgogo of Fakai and Zuru Local Government Areas to remain in the camps until the security situation has improved.
Bagudu made the call while on a sympathy visit to the IDPs camps in Government Day Secondary School, Mahuta, and Model Primary School, Isgogo, in Zuru Emirate on Friday.
He sympathized with the victims of the banditry attack and condoled the families that lost their loved ones during the incident.
“I am here to see you with important personalities and local government officials to sympathize with you. Take heart and bear with the situation as it is destined by the Almighty God,” he said.
The governor said he had already directed for relief assistance and more security measures to be taken in all the affected areas.
“You will be assisted by the government, you remain here until it is safe for you to go back. We are taking more measures to safeguard your lives and properties,” Bagudu added.
Thereafter, he prayed to God to protect them and give them the fortitude to overcome their predicaments.
However, Bagudu warned of the dangers of spreading rumours and false information amongst people, which he said could further instill fear in the minds of people.
