“Presently, they are being camped in a dilapidated, makeshift mud house yet to be plastered and floored with emergency doors and windows. The building has  no toilet facilities and potable water.
“Our attention was drawn to the emergence of IDPs in our community on Sunday by some concerned individuals.
“We took a trip there immediately and discovered over 30 women and their children with more still trooping in as a result of the herdsmen attack somewhere in Kajuru.
“We as a community are appealing to good spirited persons to come to their aid by contributing food Items, clothing, mattresses and whatever you are able to contribute for their immediate welfare.”
“We shall be meeting with the relevant security agencies and government parastatals responsible for Internally Displaced Persons in the state.”
