Kebbi agency relocates flood victims

13 September 2012, 09:20

Kebbi - The Kebbi Emergency Management Agency has relocated some flood victims from the Hajj camp to Bulasa Primary School on the outskirts of Birnin Kebbi.  

Malam Abbas Rabi’u, the Executive Director of the agency, told the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday that the relocation was to enable pilgrims to use the camp to prepare for the Hajj.

NAN recalls that persons, who were victims of a flood in August, were kept in the camp.

Rabi’u said the number of victims had reduced from 350 to100, adding that the agency received donations, such as building materials, foodstuff, drugs, blankets and mosquito nets, for the support of victims.

“I urge our kind-hearted and wealthy people to assist further in any way possible, especially considering that the agency is not mainly to provide assistance for disaster victims.

“People must know that the agency is not a compensation paying organisation, " he said.
