The Director-General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Alhaji Sani Sidi, has approved a massive relief operation to bolster previous interventions in the three states worst affected by insurgency. These are Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.
Northeast zonal coordinator of the agency, Alhaji Mohammed Kanar, said his organisation noted the gains recorded by the military in liberating communities under occupation of insurgents in the North-East geopolitical zone.
The agency was waiting for the military to declare the communities free of terrorists before embarking massive rehabilitation and reconstruction plans for the areas. “As soon as the security of communities has been declared safe by the military, we will ensure that the people are resettled accordingly by providing adequate humanitarian services in collaboration with other stakeholders,” Kanar said.
The zonal coordinator added that ongoing relief operations would be a continuous process as camps would receive weekly relief material from the agency.
