By Sadiq Aminu                                                       The Federal Government has commenced the immediate deployment of food and non-food relief materials to communities and survivors affected by the Christmas Eve attacks by marauding gunmen in Plateau state.

Dr. Edu also visited churches and some IDP camps where she addressed worshippers and victims who are taking refuge for protections after the attacks.

She assured them of President Bola Tinubu’s commitment to bring lasting solutions in terms of responses security and resettlement of people resident in the state. She said humanitarian relief would be made available almost immediately in line with the presidential directive, stating that durable solutions will be provided while ‘we rebuild’ to help them return to their ancestral homes.

The Minister also said her ministry will partner with the Nigerian Military and the Plateau State Government for onward distribution of the relief materials items.

Her words: “The President has asked us to come to Plateau state to see what was on the ground; he has also directed the immediate deployment of relief materials including food items like Rice, Grains, vegetable oil and non-food items like mattresses, clothes,Blankets among others, as well as other personal effects they will need while we plan for more durable solutions to their needs to enable them go back to their ancestral homes.

Recall that about 107 persons were massacred in about 15 communities in Barkin Ladi, Mangu and Bokkos local government areas of Plateau state by yet-to-be-identified gunmen in a coordinated attacks on Christmas Eve.

The gunmen also set no fewer than 100 houses ablaze during the horrendous attacks, a development that welcomed condemnation across the globe.

The Minister of State Defense, Muhammed Bello Matawalle, during the visit in the company of the three service chiefs, including Airforce, Army, and Navy, assured the people and Government of Plateau of protections.

Governor Caleb Mutfwang, who received the two ministers and the service chief, had earlier briefed them in a closed door meeting on the situation on the ground.
