Following the outcome of the research and report of the United Nation on the current Economic situation in the North East region, over 14million people in the Internally Displaced People (IDP)camps in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe have been identified to be in dire need of humanitarian assistance in the region.

Addressing Journalists at the United Nation office in Abuja, the United Nation representative, international organization for Migration, Mr Emma Khakula said there is an ongoing global humanitarian crisis and over 26million people will be affected by the crisis by next year based on global proportion.

Similarly, Mr. khakula said over 400,000 children are affected now and 75,000 are going to die in few months ahead.   He also identified challenges facing the IDP in the camps as poor security measures, low agricultural outputs, sexual abuse and underfunding by the Federal Government.

However, khakula stated that United Nation needs philanthropic help from well-meaning Nigerians as the IDPs have been underfunded in recent times.
