No fewer than 14 person died on thursday when fire broke out at the Internally Displaced Person IDP camp in Ngala, Borno State.
The camp houses more than 30,000 persons, who were displaced by the Islamists insurgency in the northeastern part of Nigeria since 2015.
“I wish to sincerely sympathize with the victims of today’s fire disaster.
Reacting, the Member of House Representatives Mrs. Zainab Gimba for Bama/Ngala/Kalabalge Federal Constituency sympathized with the bereaved families.
“I am deeply shocked and touched. For those that lost their loved ones, please accept my heartfelt condolences, for those that sustained injuries, I wish them quick recovery.
“I am also mindful of the fact that the next few weeks will be difficult because it is not easy to be an IDP and homeless at the same time, but very soon Insha Allah, I will send relief materials to cushion the hardships,” she said.
