The community leader of Mairi-Kuwait in Jere local government area of Borno state Malam Usman Yaya has lamented the level of insecurity and constant attacks on community members who had to go to farm in order to have food on their table.
While speaking with dandalkurain Maiduguri, MalamYaya said the community buries between two and three people on a daily basis.
He said the community hosts more than 7,500 Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs and has a total population per household of 12,765.
He added that in the last six years, since returnee’s troop back home, the level of poverty in the community has increased because there is no arrangement from government and non organisation to come for any intervention.
He also said burying people every day is becoming a normal trend and calls for government to send more soldiers to dark spots and forest linking Sambisa in order to restrict the activities of insurgents in the area.
