NEMA Constructs 100 Toilets, Shelters For IDPs in Borno
Over 100 toilets have been built at satellite camps for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Bama, one of the major commercial towns of troubled Borno State, Northeast Nigeria.
Bama is one of the major historic towns of the Kanuris. At the peak of the Boko Haram crisis, it was captured until recently liberated by the Nigerian troops.
Addressing stakeholders in the management of IDP camps in Borno State on Wednesday, the North-East Zonal Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Mohammed Kanar said 300 temporary shelters would also be constructed in camps in the state.
He noted that the temporary shelters were necessitated by the destruction of shelters in some of the camps by windstorm.
He said the agency has received commitments from the military to provide escort and logistics for relief operations in liberated communities
At the meeting were officials from NEMA, Borno State Emergency Management Agency, BOSEMA and Oxfam, security agencies and other relevant bodies.
