The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has dispatched a team from Abuja to strengthen the provision of humanitarian supports to the displaced persons from Baga, Borno State, that have fled from the recent insurgency attacks in the town.

The agency, at the weekend registered 3,200 of the IDPs from Baga that are now in Maiduguri and accommodated at the Teachers Village estate where NEMA is providing them with basic supports in collaboration with the Borno State Government.

“The creation of the new camp brings to 11 where NEMA has been supporting the IDPs with food and non-food items. The other IDPs in the camps are from towns and villages in the state which had been previously displaced by the insurgency,” said NEMA Press Officer Manzo Ezekiel.

“The NEMA special intervention team is led by the Director of Search and Rescue to join the staff at its zonal office in Maiduguri to strengthen the humanitarian intervention of the agency in the state,” Manzo said in a statement issued this afternoon in Abuja.
