About 1.8 million persons displaced by Boko Haram insurgency are unwilling to return to their ancestral communities, the Norwegian refugee council has said.
Secretary-General of the council, Jan Egeland, made this known while presenting the report on situation of Internally Displaced Persons, in Maiduguri.
He said the IDPs were still concerned about security in their communities, reconstructing their destroyed homes and finding means of livelihood when they return home.
Mr.Egeland urged people to willingly decide to return home instead of being coerced as that could be a recipe to worsen the conflict.
In another development, the Supreme Court has adjourned hearing in the trial of a former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki’s appeal to the 25th of January next year.
Colonel Dasuki is asking the Supreme Court to compel the Federal Government to allow the bail granted to him by the federal high court Abuja to stand.
The former NSA asked the supreme court to stop his trials in the lower courts until the bail granted to him is implemented.
Colonel Dasuki is facing trial for misappropriation of $2.1 billion meant for arms procurement. He is also being tried for money laundering, breach of trust, conspiracy and unlawful possession of firearms.
