Alhaji Mohammadu said, “Our challenges are numerous; only Allah will come to our rescue. In Manta District, there’s no single village that has not been sacked. Bandits invade us almost every day and chase us out of our homes. Government should come to our aid; people are suffering.”

Alhaji Mohammadu, who is also an IDP, said they had been suffering from banditry for the past eight years.
