to escape their town and take to housing in the open in Maiduguri.

Individuals from more than 300 family units in Kayamla, in the Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State, said they needed to escape into Maiduguri when the towns around them were assaulted and they believed they may be struck by Boko Haram.

Aynaijang News learnt on Monday morning, the women asked about their strange decision said their better half sent them into Maiduguri to look for asylum while they remain back in Kayamla.

One of the women, Yagana Mele, on the street beside the NYSC orientation camp in Maiduguri which has been converted to IDPs camp, said, “We have been staying here for about two weeks now, we have no choice but to sleep on the street since we were turned back from the camps.”

She narrated that they decided to flee into Maiduguri when it was becoming apparent that their village might be attacked as others around them had been attacked.
The people had, however, been taken off the streets to the Stadium IDPs camp by the Borno State Emergency Management Agency on Monday afternoon.

The Chairperson of BOSEMA, Hajiya Yabawa Kolo, said as soon as the state government got to know of their predicaments it arranged accommodation for them at the Stadium IDPs camp.
She revealed that they were about 300 households and numbered over 1,000.
