700,000 displaced by bandits in Zamfara – Govt


Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The Zamfara State Government has disclosed that there are about 700,000 displaced persons in the state as a result of the activities of bandits.

The government added that the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has established eight centres to take care of them.

Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Ibrahim Magaji Dosara, while addressing a news briefing in Kaduna said each of the 14 Local Government Areas of the state currently has emergency relief desk officers shouldering the responsibilities of assisting the IDPs in their respective local government.

“In addition to provision of food items, clothing, bed, mattresses, etc., by the state government, the Ministry appreciates the untiring efforts of the international donor agencies in this regard.

“These donor agencies complement the efforts of the state government through cash transfer to our IDPs ranging from N30,000 to N40,000 periodically to these victims.

“The federal government too has been committing huge sum in this regard. The Zamfara state government remains grateful to all who contributes in relieving the worries of these innocent people across the state,” he said.

He added that the humanitarian Ministry has embarked on training some of the victims of the banditry on skills acquisition programmes, bordering on tailoring, barbing, pure water making and providing Keke-NAPEP to some beneficiaries.
