Borno to rebuild Konduga town

13 February 2014, 10:33

Maiduguri - The Borno Government has approved N100 million to rebuild 2 000 houses destroyed during February 11 attack by suspected Boko Haram members on Konduga, headquarters of Konduga Local Government Area (LGA) of the State.

Governor  Kashim Shettima announced the approval when he visited the affected areas on Wednesday.

According to Shettima part of the money would be spent on the purchase of relief materials for victims of the attack.

Shettima also set up a committee headed by Sen. Kaka Yale to work out modalities for the reconstruction of the houses as well as purchase of relief materials. About 40 persons were killed in the attack in which 50 others were injured.

Some of the burnt structures included the headquarter building of Konduga LGA, the house of the District Head, mosques, schools, hospitals, courts and a library.

Eyewitnesses said the attackers rode in two armoured personnel carriers and Hilux trucks before setting virtually the entire town ablaze.
