An IDP who identified herself as Aisa from Marte, disclosed to correspondent, “We are not fighting but fighting for our survival. The foods are not being supplied, there is no water. 
 
"No medication for our sick kids; we want food or they should send back to our villages. They don’t allow us to go out to beg. We are kept like prisoner without food”, she said.
 
It was also gathered that security operatives seemed helpless as the IDPs (mostly women and children) refused to leave the highway as no government official has addressed the protesters yet.
 
This is a developing story, we'll be bringing you more details as soon as its made possible.
