Refugee camps: Presidency summons Governor Shettima over deaths

The Presidency on Wednesday summoned the Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, over reported deaths and malnutrition among children at Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in the state.
Doctors Without Borders- (Médecins Sans Frontières), an international humanitarian aid organization had last week released a statement and photographs, stating that about 24,000 IDPs were in dire health situation with at least 30 people, mostly children dying every day.
President Muhammadu Buhari, according to sources, was angry over the report despite billions of naira being spent by the different levels of government and donor agencies and philanthropists on the IDPs.
Shettima was sighted coming out from the office of the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, at the Presidential Villa.
When approached by journalists for comments on the allegations and why he was at the seat of power, the governor declined comments, saying it was a private visit. - THE SUN
