The leadership of the Nigerian army have been criticized for invading the camp of UN officials over rumours of the presence of Boko Haram operatives.
The Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, Edward Kallon, has condemned the “unauthorized search” of a United Nations base for humanitarian workers in Maiduguri, Borno State.
This is contained in a statement the world body sent to DAILY POST on Friday. It said at 5am on Friday, members of the Nigerian security forces entered the UN base for humanitarian workers in Maiduguri “without authorization”.
“The security forces carried out a search of the tented camp and left the area at 0800 hours.
“The United Nations does not have any information at this time regarding the reason or motivations for the unauthorized search.
“The Humanitarian Coordinator is working closely with the Government of Nigeria to resolve this issue.
“The humanitarian crisis in Nigeria’s north-east is one of the most severe in the world today,” said Mr Kallon.
“I am extremely concerned that these actions could be detrimental to the critical work that is being carried out every day to support the most vulnerable in the region and I call upon the Government of Nigeria to provide clarification.”
The United Nations and more than 50 non-governmental humanitarian organisations are working in support of the Government of Nigeria to provide aid, including food, safe water and medicine, to some 6.9 million people in need in the northeast.
