"I saw fear, sorrow and trauma" Says 2Face after visit to Maiduguri

Legendary musician, Innocent Idiabia popularly known as 2Face has revealed that he was saddened by the pathetic condition of IDPs camping in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital. The musician paid a visit to the state to identify with troops and displaced people. The visit was facilitated by UNHCR.
According to 2Face  "I am here in Maiduguri with support from UNHCR to use my music in contributing to alleviate the suffering of our IDPs and other victims of insurgence.

“I feel honoured to work with organization like UNHCR, am just one person, when I went round some of these camps, I was saddened, I saw fear, sorrow and trauma, I feel disappointed looking at the faces and eyes of the IDPs. You will see hunger and object poverty. Unless Government and politicians shun injustice, corruption and remained focus and committed to our collective development, these same set of traumatized and displaced people in camps may turn up to be more dangerous in the society.

“Although, I have seen hope of life among some of these IDPs, all hands must be on deck to the needful by rendering support no matter how little it is. Presently I have a song, titled ‘Hold my Hands’, this song is on many platforms, all people need to do is to download it and use it ringing tone. It will only cost you N50 per month, but will surely contribute in giving hope of life to our traumatized victims of insurgency.

” In my little way, I have come and seen the live in camps and next week, when I go back to Abuja, we are going to do a concert as my proceed donation in alleviating the suffering of the IDPs”

The Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeastern part of Nigeria has sent thousands to their early graves and had millions displaced, creating a humanitarian crisis. Although the Nigerian Military has recorded huge successes against the insurgents fighting to establish an Islamic Republic, but many displaced people are still yet to return to their communities.
