Ndume, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Yola on Saturday, said that affected communities who were forced to leave their villages and towns are now anxious to return home and were ready to fight back.

NAN reports that the Senate Majority leader was in Yola , where he visited thousands of Internally Displaced Persons mostly from Gwoza and other local government areas from Borno in some IDPs camps at the outskirts of Yola.

“We have suffered a lot and our people have learned a lesson from this ungodly crisis. We will never allow such barbaric act to happen again, our eyes are open now.

“Our people are ready to fight back now to reclaim the remaining of their villages and towns as well as their freedom of living with one another in peace and dignity,” Ndume said.

He said the lasting solution for Boko Haram insurgency was to take the fight to their hide out and wipe them out completely.
