The Federal Government will today host a dialogue for victims of Boko Haram insurgency at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja. Minister of Interior retired Lieutenant General Abdulrahman Dambazau said the dialogue, which will be held in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, has become imperative in view of the adverse effects of the Boko Haram insurgency on the livelihood of the population of the Lake Chad Basin, consisting of Niger, Chad, Cameroon and Nigeria.
A statement yesterday in Abuja by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Bassey Akpanyung, said the dialogue will adopt measures to support governments in ensuring the protection of refugees, Internally Displaced Persons and host communities.
