No fewer than 27,000 persons displaced by activities of bandits in Katsina State have returned to their various homes following gradual return of peace in the state.

The state Commission for Sports and Social Development, Alhaji Sani Danlami told newsmen that no single person displaced by bandit is currently taking shelter at Internally Displaced Person (IDP) camps.

Danlami explained that all the five IDP camps hitherto served as home for displaced persons are closed by the government.

“The IDP camps in Faskari, Dandume, Jibia, Batsari and Safana are all closed and all the 27,000 displaced persons have returned to their homes,” he said.

He said before the closure of the camps, government had expended about N1.4 million to provide, relief material to the displaced persons.

On evacuation of lunatics off the streets, Danlami said 176 of them were evacuated and kept at psychiatric home.

He said the administration provided food and drugs for the evacuated lunatics, adding that some of them have regained their senses and been re-united with their families.

Danlami said the exercise would continue to evacuate all of them off the street across 34 local government areas of the state.
