Nigerians are depressed and thrown into a period of mourning with the bombing of the IDP camp in Rann, Borno state.
There are so many weird things going on in the society; the issue of national security has been a major concern for Nigerians in recent times. Although one has to acknowledge the role the government is playing in trying to sort the displaced persons, the bombing of the camp has thrown Nigerians home and abroad into a state of confusion.
The activities of the much dreaded Boko Haram sect has tampered with the peace and harmony of Nigeria as a nation. The victims of war or conflict are not just those who die in the battle, those who live to tell the story live with pains and memories that may never make them remain the same again.
In this light, the displaced persons at the camps have seen a lighter shade of death with the hardship and sufferings they have endured in recent times. Some of them are lost and have no inkling of the whereabouts of their loved ones. Living in the IDP camp is enough reason for them to be depressed and frustrated when they used to be major business owners and land owners.
