Mambilla crisis: FG pledges to address plight of victims
Following the communal clash between indigenes of Mambilla Plateau in Taraba State and the Fulani, which led to the displacement of hundreds of people, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has assured victims of Federal Government’s intervention to ameliorate their plight.
Director General of NEMA, Engr. Mustapha Yunusa Maihaja, gave the assurance during an assessment visit to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in Gembu and Nguroje in Sardauna Local Government Area of Taraba.
Maihaja, who was represented by the Director of Search and Rescue, Air Commodore Sonny Paul Ohemu, told the IDPs that the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, was deeply worried about the attacks. While conveying Federal Government sympathy, he advised the communities to remain calm, and that they should desist from further destruction of lives and property.
