Benue: 51 IDPs died in six months –Commandant

At least 51 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), who fled from herdsmen killings in Benue State, have died at the Abagena IDPs Camp, Makurdi.

The Camp Commandant, Mr. James Iorkyaa, who disclosed this in an interview with New Telegraph at the camp yesterday, said out of the number, one died of accident while the remaining 50 died of various ailments.
He, however, debunked reports that the deaths were as a result of poor condition of living at the camps.

Iorkyaa added that of most of the IDPs contracted the diseases which killed them from their villages before coming to take refuge in the camp, noting that some died of age-related problems.
