Abuja - Traumatised communities in Chibok in the Borno State, which has been the key target for terror groups, have received a major boost after government organisations distributed more relief material to shield them from hardships.
Ezekiel Manzo National Press Officer of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) disclosed the distribution at a Forum of Spokespersons of Security and Response Agencies (FOSSRA) and I-Nigerian Initiative in Abuja.
He said the material mainly included household items of food and non-food along with some other essentials building materials for temporary shelter.
Manzo said efforts to rebuild the community would only commence after government hopefully defeated the terrorists who have been on a rampage in the region in recent years.

He added that the Director General of the agency, Mohammed Sani Sidi, spearheaded distribution of relief materials to critical communities to motivate other emergency officers to render support in crisis zones.
The official added that NEMA had been effectively collaborating with military and security agencies in the fight against terrorism.
This, he said, had culminated in officials of the agency promptly distributing relief.
Chibok is among several communities in the North East to suffer human rights violations the Boko Haram sector is perpetrating. In April, members of the sect kidnapped about 300 school girls from a government secondary school in the area. Efforts to rescue them have proven futile.
