NEMA Delivers Relief Materials, Drugs To 20, 000 Dikwa IDPs
The Zonal Coordinator of the agency in Northeast, Alhaji Mohammed Kanar disclosed this Friday in Maiduguri, while briefing newsmen on
the modalities of distributing relief materials to liberated captured towns in the state.
His words: “The distribution of these relief materials to over 20, 000 displaced persons in Dikwa local government of Borno State, included food and non-food items of tents and blankets. We are moving to Bama, Gwoza, Askira-Uba, Marte and Baga local government areas to distribute relief materials to liberated people in the areas.”
The team from NEMA, who were greeted on arrival at Dikwa by thousands of visibly elated residents that lined the streets to welcome them,
erected camps in the town.
Kanar, while addressing the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), pledged that as soon as final clearance is received from the military,
rehabilitation of structures destroyed by insurgents will be done to enable the displaced persons to return to their homes.
He said this was the second time that the agency was sharing relief items to people of Dikwa in recent time.
On the entourage of agency to Dikwa were other stakeholders in emergency management including UNICEF and local government health
workers who went about erection of tents, immunization of children, and administration of drugs to those requiring medical attention.
