    What someone said about the this ugly development -

    Stories of looting the funds for IDPs is truly despicable equated only by the diversion of funds meant for arms that would have prevented these calamities in the first place. Woe onto those involved.

    That said, watching those videos clearly showed those children starving were recently rescued by the military as the gain more territories, this may exacerbate further sadly before it gets better. Feeding, caring, clothing and housing 2-3m people is no joke, the the NGOS, Borno state government and the military are truly benevolent and deserving our praises. For those who divert funds for IDPs and this who politicise the crisis to an opportunity to abuse and hound others I say may God touch their hearts of they are not immune to such as record shows they have tasted war before.
