The wife of the Benue State Governor, Mrs Yemisi Suswam who led wives of other northern governors to Borno State said the gesture is to provide succor for Nigerians who have suffered from the activities of the insurgents.

She appealed to the Governor of Borno State not to be deterred by the incessant attacks by members of the Boko haram sect but to focus on how to improve the lives of his people.

Governor Kashim Shetimma, who received the ladies, thanked them for the show of love to the people and assured them that the government will ensure that insecurity will soon be a part of history.

Hundreds of internally displaced persons (IDPs) are presently in various camps in the city of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital as well as other parts of the country.

Many Nigerians are eager to see that the war against the insurgents will soon be won so that displaced persons can reunite with their families and loved ones.
