The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described the spate of suicide bombings and attacks on soft targets by Boko Haram, lately as actions of hungry and desperate terrorists.

His declaration came on a day a document from the United Nations indicated that the global body released $58 million to assist 2.4 million people affected by Boko Haram-related violence from March 2015 to February 4, 2016.

Borno State government has also defied the protest by donor agencies and began relocating Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, from public schools to resettlement camps to allow for the resumption of students, after the schools were closed due to Boko Haram insurgency in March, 2014.

Mohammed, who spoke on the spate of bombing while fielding questions at a press briefing in Abuja, yesterday, said Boko Haram sect members were not only venting the anger of their hunger and desperation on soft targets but also trying to demonstrate that they were still relevant.

Meanwhile, Borno State government, yesterday, defied the protest by donor agencies’ and began relocating Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, from public schools to resettlement camps to allow for the resumption of students, after the schools were closed due to Boko Haram insurgency in March, 2014. Their protest was expressed through a representative from the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, UNICEF, simply identified as Mr. Victor, to the committee that the donor agencies “are dissatisfied with the arrangements.” Similarly, the United Nations has released $58 million to assist 2.4 million people affected by Boko Haram-related violence in 2015.
