Internally displaced people die of trauma due to Boko Haram attacks

The Christian Asso­ciation of Nigeria (CAN) in Borno State has said that two of its members at an Internally Displaced Persons camp in Borno state died over the weekend from shock and trauma they suffered during Boko Haram attacks in their communities recently. Their death was made known by the coordinator of the Church of the Brethren (EYN) camp, Mr. Daniel Ali Garga yesterday May 11th 2015.

He said the two persons were suspected to be having psychiatric problems, adding that they had been admitted at the Federal Neuro Psychiatric Hospital. He gave the names of those who died recently of cardiac arrest as Daniel Kadagha (47), who is survived by six children and Mrs. Tani Dughwadza (68).

"“They were treated and discharged of the trauma and shock they had, after they were attacked and dis­placed from their communi­ties by Boko Haram early this year,” he said.

He added that seven internally displaced persons passed away a week ago at the State Spe­cialist Hospital, Maiduguri after battling with heart related and kidney related illnesses.

“We lost two IDPs on Sat­urday in my camp making a total of nine deaths recorded so far. May their souls rest in perfect peace,” Garga said.
