The Presidential Committee on Victims Support Fund (PCVSF) has spent about N10 billion on various projects to get the internally displaced persons (IDPs) resettled in the North-East.
Vice Chairman of PCVSF, Tijjani Musa Tumsah, revealed that the number of originally displaced persons, put at 2.4 million, had reduced to 1.7 million.
Speaking yesterday during an official visit to the management of New Telegraph, Tumsah said stability was gradually returning to the various camps just as most of the displaced persons have been resettled in their communities.
He added that the gradual return of peace and stability had made it possible to close IDPs’ camp in Yobe State.
He also disclosed that four policemen indicted for demanding sex before allowing IDPs to have access to food in their camps have been dismissed and currently being tried for the offence.
