INTERNALLY Displaced Persons (IDPs) who escaped to Maiduguri when Bama was attacked by the Boko Haram insurgents are now begging for food and other essentials in Maiduguri while three women among them delivered babies on the streets.
A BBC Hausa report monitored in Kaduna quoted a Maiduguri resident who craved for anonymity as saying that he gave a woman from Bama N200 when she delivered her baby close to a Masjid.
He said the woman had informed them that her husband had been missing since they left Bama.
The IDPs, according to the report, were now wandering in the state capital begging for food and other essentials, even as more people continue to escape from other troubled communities to Maidugiuri.
The report said that due to a very hot weather, some women died on their way from Bama to Maiduguri.
