Gov Al-makura Donates N7 million, Food Items to Thousands of IDPs

Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura of Nasarawa State has condemned the diversion of relief materials meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) sheltered in the state.

The Governor who expressed displeasure at the development while distributing relief materials to IPDs in Kiana Local Government Area of the state, said that government will be involved in the distribution of relief materials going forward to check such ugly trend.

Governor Al-makura who donated N7 million and some food items to the IDPs assured them that the government would intensify collaboration with security agencies to restore normalcy so that they could go back to their homes.

Receiving the donated items on behalf of the IDPs, the President of Tiv Development Association, Mr. Boniface Ifer, thanked the Governor for his kind gesture and urged security agencies to intensify patrol especially in the interior communities where Fulani herdsmen are known to have carried out series of killings in recent times.
