Internally Displaced Persons taking refuge in Taraba state have appealed to the state government to offer free education to their children. Their spokesman, Mallam Ibrahim Dauda said majority of them were victims of Boko - Haram insurgency from Adamawa Borno and Yobe states while others were victims of communal crisis in the State.
He said they were finding it difficult to feed themselves because they have lost all their belongings in the attack by the insurgents. According to him, most of them are jobless and therefore were unable to send their children to schools. Dauda explained that their children were engaged in hawking and would go back to school if offered free education by the state government.
