President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the sum of N10 billion for the rehabilitation of victims and communities affected by various forms of violence and attacks in different parts of the country.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo made the disclosure Tuesday during a visit to two internally displaced persons (IDPs) camps in Benue State as part of his official visit to the state.

Several communities in Benue, Taraba, Zamfara and Kaduna have suffered violent attacks in recent months as a result of conflicts between farmers and herders; as well as attacks by bandits.

Osinbajo, who arrived in Benue on Tuesday afternoon, visited the IDP camps and met with various groups in the state.

According to his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, in a series of tweets, the Vice President took with him “a message of hope and restoration.”

He said Mr Osinbajo was received by Governor Samuel Ortom, accompanied by the Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, and the Director-General of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and other federal government officials.

The Vice President’s first port of call was Abagena camp which houses more than 34,000 persons.
