Abuja - The United Bank of Nigeria has donated relief material to the Borno Government for the upkeep of victims of Boko Haram insurgency in the state.

He said the objective was to assist the state government in its efforts to ensure comfort for the victims.

“On behalf of the UBA, I hereby present these relief materials to the numerous victims of insurgency in the state. The donation is targeted at cushioning the hardship being faced by the victims who had been rendered homeless by the insurgents,” Ngulde said.

The executive also expressed optimism that the renewed military action would eventually crush the insurgency.

“It is our prayer that the insurgency will soon end, so that the numerous Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) taking refuge in camps will return home,” he said.

Items donated include 200 bags of 50 kg rice and 100 cartons of noodles and others.

Shuwa, representing Governor Kashim Shettima, thanked the bank for the gesture and promised judicious utilisation of the items for the purpose intended.
