Kaura Attack: Kaduna Govt Donates Relief Materials to Displaced Persons
The Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency today (Saturday) visited the displaced people of Ungwar Sakwai, Tekum and Ungwar Kwura villages in Kaura local government area of the state that have been forced to take shelter in schools, following last Saturday’s attack by gunmen in the three villages.
The visit was part of effort by the state governor, Mukhtar Yero to ensure that the victims overcome the trauma of the attack which left no less than 114 people dead and many houses destroyed.
The Executive Secretary of the agency, Ishaku Makama and his officials visited the displaced persons camp at a primary school in Bondon where relief materials worth millions of naira were donated to the victims.
Relief materials donated included food items, toiletries, provisions, bedding’s, among others.
At the camp, the victims lamented how they lost all their properties and relations during the attack, saying that life has become meaningless to them as they are now living in fear.
They also want both the state and federal government to come to their rescue and stop further attacks against them.
This is not the first time that gunmen are attacking Kaura villages. In 2013 alone, no fewer than ten communities were ransacked by the assailants, killing innocent people.
While the victims occupy a primary school pending when they return to their homes, the pupils who are supposed to be attending classes have been forced to stay at home.
