He added that recent attacks on some communities in the state had resulted in the displacement of more than 400,000 people.

He said the state government was catering to the victims and to refugees from Cameroon staying in Kwande Local Government Area of the state.

He appealed to the Federal Government to assist as the burden was becoming cumbersome for the state government.

Shior said assailants killed and maimed and also destroyed infrastructures such as markets, churches, and schools in communities attacked. (NAN)
