Kaduna state Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has donated relief materials worth N7.6 million to victims of the recent attacks in Manchok, Kaura local government area.
Presented the materials, the deputy governor, who is the chairman of SEMA, Ambassador Nuhu Audu Bajoga, said government was concerned about the welfare of the victims of the recent attacks in the local government.
Speaking during a condolence visit to the paramount ruler of Manchok, the Chief of Moroa, Mr. Tagwai Sambo, the deputy governor condemned the attacks, urging the people not to take vengeance.
Bajoga said the relief materials were “meant to cushion the suffering of the victims,” and pledged government’s readiness to promptly respond to the needs of the victims.
He advised the youth to refrain from taking up arms as the state government was already working with security agents towards ensuring that such incidents were nipped in the bud.
Thanking the state government on behalf of the victims, the chairman, Kaura local government area, Mr. Kumai Badon, said “so far about 173 houses had been destroyed by the attackers,” and promised to be fair in the distribution of the items.
Some of the relief materials donated included bags of rice, cartons of indomie, bundles of zinc, packets of nails, palm oil, groundnut oil, mattresses, and bags of cement.
