KANO (AFP) - Deadly clashes between Islamists and security forces last week have displaced an estimated 90,000 people in the northeastern Nigerian city of Damaturu, an emergency official said Wednesday. "We have at the moment an estimated 90,000 displaced people from the Damaturu violence," said Ibrahim Farinloye, northeast coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency. "Around 40,000 of this figure is from the Pompomari area, where the whole neighbourhood has been deserted. Some of the displaced have lost their homes, while others just fled for their security." Farinloye said, "We advised the displaced against moving into any temporary camp for security reasons.”
