The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has donated eight trucks of relief materials to about 29,000 victims displaced by bandits in seven villages and towns in Anka Emirate, Zamfara.
The NEMA’s Coordinator, Sokoto Operations Office, Sulaiman Muhammad made this known to Newsmen in Gusau on Monday.
Sulaiman said that the items comprised of assorted grains, clothing materials, cosmetics, and toiletries among others.
According to him, Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and the NEMA Director-General are expected to flag off the distribution of the items to IDPs in Talata-Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara on Tuesday.
The Coordinator said that the gesture was aimed at supporting the victims and ameliorating their suffering.
He urged the IDPs to remain calm as the Federal Government was working hard to end the insecurity in the state.
Sulaiman thanked the State government and traditional rulers in the state for their commitments in supporting the IDPs.
