The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Sunday presented relief materials to hundreds of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in six satellite camps in Monguno, Borno.
Alhaji Muhammad Kanar, the NEMA North-East Zonal Coordinator, presented the materials to the IDPs at a ceremony in Monguno, headquarters of Monguno Local Government Area.
Kanar said that the gesture was aimed at providing succour to the IDPs who were rescued by the military from suspected Boko Haram hideouts.
He urged them to consider their predicament as an act of God and utilise the items judiciously.
Kanar said the exercise would continue as more people were expected to be rescued by the military in their current war against terrorism.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the items distributed included foodstuff comprising rice, noodles, cooking oil, Semovita and non-food items such as blankets and medicines.
Some of the beneficiaries commended NEMA for the gesture.
One of them, Malam Abana Yakubu, expressed delight at the donation, saying,“we are very happy with your coming and we pray that God rewards you abundantly for the gesture’’
