Muhammad Sani-Sidi, the Director-General of National Emergency management Agency (NEMA) made this known when Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Gu Xiaojie, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Thursday.
He said more than 90 percent of the IDPs were mostly people from the insurgency-affected states in the restive northeast.
According to him, the insurgency in the northeast, which is one of the major challenges confronting the country, has caused a large displacement of people.
He said with the success recorded by the security agencies, most of the IDPs had started returning to their various communities.
The director-general said before now, there were over 11 camps in Adamawa and about 23 in Borno, adding that the Adamawa camps had been reduced to five.
The Nigerian official added that the agency had assisted the IDPs with ‘exit package’ when they left the camps, to enable them to re-establish themselves.
Sani-sidi said disaster management was multi sectoral, multi-sectoral and multi dimensional. Enditem
