Femi Kuti drums up support for Boko Haram victims, visits IDP camp in Borno

Eldest son of late Afro­beat legend, Fela Ani­kulapo Kuti, Femi Kuti has joined the list of celebrities who are identifying with the Internally Displaced Persons. The Afrobeat sensation visited the IDP camp for victims of the terror group Boko Haram in Maiduguri recently.
He was there on a trip with the International Rescue Commis­sion to help the displaced people settle in new communities and build medical facilities.
Femi told news agency Re­uters that he hoped that more ce­lebrities will lend their voices to the cause and pressure govern­ment to find a lasting solution to their plight.
‘I hope more celebrities will visit and engage with their fans, he said. ‘Then more people will see what is going on, share it on social media and put pressure on the government to do more…’
Thousands of people have been killed while millions have been forced to flee their homes and villages since the Boko Ha­ram terror group started its ram­page in that region in 2009.
