Victims of communal clashes in Taraba get relief materials
The National Emergency Management Agency NEMA has distributed relief materials to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) that were affected by the Mambilla Plateau communal crisis in Sardauna local government area of Taraba State.
Coordinator of the agency in charge of Adamawa and Taraba States, Alh. Abbani Imam who led the team to Gembu for the distribution of the items said that, the intervention was aimed at identifying with the victims in alleviating the hardship they are experiencing.
He explained that over two thousand IDPs benefited in eleven communities that were identified and designated at four different Camps in the area.
Abbani pointed out that the items distributed include: six hundred bags of rice, three hundred bags of millet, three hundred bags of maize among other things.
The coordinator, however, told newsmen that when he visited the area, he was confused and could not find the reason of the crisis between the Fulani and Mambilla because he noticed that their language and culture are almost the same.
Abbani Imam, therefore, appealed to the people of the area to embrace peace and love one another for the development of their area, Taraba State and Nigeria as a whole, saying that the Mambilla Power Project that were approved by President Muhammadu Buhari is a great achievement to the people of the area and the Nigerians in general.
Some of the IDPs in an interview expressed gratitude and commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts towards ensuring peace and development across the country.
