The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), said it had re-united 23 families who were separated as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.

Ignacio San Roman, the Head of the Sub- delegation of the organisation, stated this on Sunday in Yola in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

San Roman said that the families were re united following several contacts made by the organisation through telephones, photos and other available means.

“We have so far reunited 23 families from North Eastern Nigeria after they were separated and lost contact due to Boko Haram conflict.

“And among them, three are cross border cases”, San Roman said.

He explained that the three cross border families re-united included one from Chad and two other from Cameroon.

San Roman explained that the link up family project was for unaccompanied minors or parents looking for their children and vulnerable adults.

He said that very soon the organisation would organise more cross border reunification from Chad, Niger and Cameroon.
