The Gombe State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has raised the alarm on the influx of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) into the state.

The Executive Secretary, Dr. Danlami Arabs Rukujei, said the IDPs are mostly from Damboa in Borno State.

He said over 1,000 IDPs had come the state within the last two days and the number still swelling.

“Since I took over this responsibility, this has been the largest influx of IDPs and as I speak to you, we have not finished the registration.”

One of the victims, Mohammed Abdulrahman, said Boko Haram insurgents invaded Damboa last Friday, killing, maiming and destroying properties and because there were no security operatives in Damboa.
