NEMA Visits Communities Affected By Farmers/Herders Clashes In Adamawa



A federal government delegation from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has visited communities in Demsa and Numan LGAs recently affected by farmers/herders crises in Adamawa State.

The delegation led by the acting director general of the agency, Air Commodore Akube Iyamu, was in the affected areas on the spot assessment of level of damages in the two councils.

The team visited Bare, Mbolong, Numan General Hospital and LCCN Cathedral in Numan, where displaced persons from the attacks are taking refuge.

Iyamu said the purpose of the visit is to commiserate with victims as well as assess damages for immediate intervention supports and cushion the effect of the attacks on the affected villages.

“We are here to sympathize with you and pray that such crisis will not happen again.

“NEMA would do the needful, to bring succour to the victims immediately after this assessment.

“The collation of figures would be done fast for intervention immediately,” he maintained.

The Hama Bachama, Homun Irmiya Stephen, urged governments to take proactive  measures to curtail the crises even before it happen, to avert loss of lives and property.

The monarch lauded President Muhammadu Buhari’s quick intervention, while attributing the attack to lack of security personnel in the affected communities.

“We are still under threats, as we pray that the crisis would be a thing of the past.

We have too much on our plate in Numan, Zamfara, Birnin Gwari and others, while government impact have not been felt much, which does not argue well for the victims,” he said.

The Hama Bata, Gladson  Teneke, called for more intervention as the victims  means of livelihood have totally been destroyed by the attackers.
