Drugs and surgical consumables worth N42million have been donated by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to the Adamawa State government to ameliorate the plight of victims of recent herdsmen attacks
NEMA Director-General, Mr. Mustapha Maihaja, who presented the relief materials to the government, said that they were meant for victims of the various attacks in the state.
Maihaja, who was represented by the State Coordinator of NEMA, Abbani Garki Imma, said that Federal Government was disturbed by the spate of attacks in state, particularly in the Numan Federation.
He commended the efforts already taken by the state government and urged them not to relent.
Maihaja further charged them to ensure that the relief materials got to the real beneficiaries.
The Deputy Governor, Mr. Martins Babale, who received the items on behalf of the state, thanked the Federal Government for acting promptly, adding that the attacks in the state were a major concern to the hudiciary..
He noted that the attacks had brought untold hardship to the victims and starvation because farmers no longer go to their farms.
The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Fati Atiku Abubakar, said the relief came at the right time, stressing that before the last attack on the Numan Federation, the ministry had requested for relief from NEMA after the Mubi bomb blast.
