Eight trucks of relief materials from the National Emergency Management Agency, have arrived for about 29,000 victims displaced by bandits in seven villages and towns in Anka Emirate, Zamfara.

The coordinator confirmed that Osinbajo will visit alongside the NEMA Director-General to inaugurate the distribution of the items to IDPs in Talata-Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara, adding that the visit was aimed at supporting the victims and ameliorating their suffering.

He urged the IDPs to remain calm, assuring them that the Federal Government was working hard to end the insecurity in the state.

Mr Mohammed thanked the state government and traditional rulers in the state for their commitments in supporting the IDPs.

The Emir of Anka and Chairman Zamfara Council of Chiefs, Attahiru Ahmad, made this known on Sunday during the presentation of relief materials donated by Anka Emirate Foundation (AEF) to IDPs in Anka.
