Nine of the victims underwent successful surgical operation as a result of bullet wounds sustained in Boko Haram attack. They were in crucial condition when the military authority handed them to NEMA.
The DG who was accompanied by the United Nation Coordinator in Nigeria Mr Dauda Taure and the Deputy Governor of Adamawa State Alh Saadi MC Tahir, donated drugs to the FMC management for their up keeps and treatment.
He promised the victims that the Federal Government will do everything humanly possible to ensure that they are given quality treatment in the hospital.
The management of the FMC led by Professor Awwal Abubakar briefed the team that 9 women were seriously wounded by bullets and bomb blast which have been operated upon.
He disclosed the remaining patients are children who had been malnourished as result of hunger and starvation.
Earlier the DG and his entourage had visited Malkohi camp where he gave directives that tailors should be contracted to sew clothes for the 275 victims hosted in the camp.
Sidi, promised the victims that the federal government would continued to sustain food facilities in the camp through NEMA and other agencies to enable the victims recovered before reintegrating with their families.
The United Nations coordinator also directed UNICEF to provide good sanitation at the camp in order to avoid open defecation by children as this may cause an outbreak of disease at the camp.
The NEMA coordinator in Adamawa State Mr Saad Bello disclosed that 90 children among the victims do no have parents.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
