Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

National Commission for
Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) says it
will financially support the six victims of fire explosion, which
occurred at the Wassa IDPs camp, FCT, on Sunday. The Federal Commissioner, Hajiya Sadiya Farouk said
this when she visited the National Hospital Trauma Centre on Thursday
in Abuja to sympathise with victims of the fire out break.

“They are IDPs that were affected in the fire incident, and with what we have seen, it’s a very traumatic sight.
“The
agency is saddled with the responsibility of giving assistance and
protection to persons in concern and being IDPs children.
“We
are going to provide that assistance and protection, we have seen them
and we are going to foot all bills and all necessary arrangements to
help them recover.’’
Farouk said
that the fire explosion was as a result of fuel licking from a generator
that was on, which entered the room of the victims.
Also speaking, Dr Olaomi Oluwole, Director
clinical services of the National Hospital, Trauma Centre, said that
the three patients at the centre had a major burnt.
He said that the minors were responding to treatment, noting that children recover faster than adult in burnt cases.

“The
three IDPs children had major burnt, they are in the burnt unit which
is an ICU for burnt patients, they are young so I pray that they should
be able to recover better and faster than the adults.

The young children had major burnt and will need a lot of efforts both
in terms of consumables, dressing, drugs and human attention, to make
them get over their present predicament.
“They
are responding to treatment, so far, they look more lively, less of
pains and they are more comfortable now, the burnt is on their upper
limbs and one of them have burnt on her face,“
he said.
News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the fire explosion happened at the
Wassa IDPs camp in Durumi on Sunday evening with six persons affected,
three children and three adults.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
