The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has commenced the distribution of relief materials to the rescued residents of Bama and other towns in Borno State that are now taking refuge in various camps in Maiduguri.
Several residents of Bama and other communities were recently rescued after the Nigerian military reclaimed the towns from the insurgents. The North East zonal coordinator of NEMA, Mohammad Kanar at the presentation of the relief materials at the camps in Maiduguri said that the agency’s Director- General Muhammad Sani Sidi, directed that the items be distributed to the rescued residents to ameliorate their sufferings and provide them with minimal comfort.
He said the items were also delivered for distribution to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) that are in the camps.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Borno State government and the beneficiaries, chairman of the State Emergency Management Agency (BOSEMA) Alhaji Grema Terab, thanked the federal government and NEMA for the gesture. He assured that the distribution of the items would be done in conjunction with all the stakeholders.
The distribution of materials were carried out in the camps hosting the rescued residents and IDPs at the NYSC, Federal Training Centre and Teachers Village camps among others. The beneficiaries are mostly women, children and the elderly.
The relief materials delivered were made up of food and non-food items including rice, maize, cartons of noodles, beverages, mosquito nets, mattresses, mats and plastic containers among others.
