     This pictures were taken by Kayode Ogundamisi, a popular Political and human rights activist. He took these pictures of these displaced kids at a camp for internally displaced persons in Borno state, Nigeria.
These young children who I pray that their futures will not be stolen from them, are victims of Boko Haram menace in Northern Nigeria.
Kayode Ogundamisi has been trying to create awareness about the plight of internally displaced persons in camps run by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA)
He recently tweeted directly to the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo raising serious issues which I would really be disappointed should the Vice President ignore.
The Vice President recently visited a similar camp. He was given a tour by NEMA officials. Kayode alleges that the camp the Vice President was shown and the situation presented to him was not the true situation of things.
The activist future went on to allege serious corruption and fraud in NEMA. Something I’m not surprised but highly disappointed about.
He also pointed out that NEMA’s behaviour is frustrating foreign aid agencies efforts.
The Vice President and indeed the Federal Government must look into these allegations and take necessary steps!
Fire those that need to be fired and restore sanity to the system! We are talking about people who have lost almost everything because their Government couldn’t protect them and now their welfare even as displaced persons are being compromised by corrupt persons! Completely unacceptable.!
