She said that the Commission was so concern over the traumatized state of both the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), and refugees in the neighbouring countries.

She pointed out that UNHCR was finding it difficult in handling such cases as it was difficult to treat such persons.

adding that that UNHCR had started working in Nigeria in humanitarian facets since 1963, therefore, would not afford to joke while handing such issues.

The UNHCR representative assured that she would ensure that both IDPs and refugees were given adequate attention especially in term of food and shelters.
