Female IDPs accuse soldiers of demanding sex in exchange for favours

Some victims of the conflict in the North-East have accused soldiers and members of the civilian Joint Task Force, JTF, of raping women and girls in internally displaced persons, IDPs, camps and a hospital in Borno State. 

The victims in a petition sent under the Knifar Movement, a body advocating the rights of displaced persons, called on the National Assembly to come to their rescue.

But the military authorities in a swift reaction, yesterday, dismissed allegations as another blackmail against soldiers assigned to ensure order and safety in IDPs camps. The victims said the alleged harassment had continued unabated since 2015 when they were displaced from their homes as a result of the insurgency in the region.

They also alleged that 466 of them have died in Bama Hospital camp, while 279 others in the area are being detained in military barracks and Maiduguri maximum prison “for offences they did not commit.”
