NOA decries displacement of 51,000 children in Maiduguri

The National Orientation Agency, NOA has decried the displacement of 51,000 children in Maiduguri due to the Boko Haram insurgency. The Director-General of the agency, Dr Garba Abari, said this during a National Sensitization campaign on security awareness and peaceful co-existence in Jos.

According to him, the children between ages three to six years do not have knowledge of where they come from or who their parents are. Dr Abari, while presenting a paper entitled; “Building a People of Peace, a Collective Effort’’, expressed worry that youths were being recruited by unscrupulous Nigerians for nefarious and terrorist activities.
