“I will remain with Borno people and share their pain. I am ready to face the problem with my people and together we will find solution to it. Whatever resources it will take to build the houses, I will spend it,” the governor said.
He said that part of the N100 million would be spent on the purchase of relief materials for victims of the attack and also set up a six-man committee headed by Kaka Yale, a senator, to work out modalities for the reconstruction of the houses as well as purchase of relief materials.
Eyewitnesses say about 100 persons were killed in the attack in which 50 others were injured and many others are still missing.
It was alleged that at least 25 teenage girls were abducted.
Some of the burnt structures included the headquarter building of Konduga local government council, the house of the district head, mosques, schools, hospitals, courts, library, among others.
