The secretary general, Adamawa State Widows Association, Sarah Apagu, has tasked governments and donor agencies in the country to salvage its 25000 members dying from hunger and starvation in the state.
Apagu raised the alarm in Yola, Friday, while speaking to newsmen on the issue.
She said there is increasing death of its members in the state due to terrible living conditions and hunger.
Apagu urged humanitarian agencies and governments at all levels to come to their aid by rescuing their children.
“So far, we have been able to discover and register additional 2,000 widows whose husbands were killed by Boko Haram in the state.
“Our registered members have increased from 25,000 to 27,000 and we are still going round collecting data of the widows especially, in some areas like Madagali, Michika among others.
‘’The worst aspect is that, they have no access to medical facility.’’
Apagu, a retired civil servant, said that she lost her husband in 1993 and was left to cater for her four children, while still waiting for her retirement gratuity.
