Kano - The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Thursday pledged to assist victims of Wednesday’s bomb attack in Kano who are currently receiving medical treatment in various hospitals.
NEMA Zonal Coordinator in Kano, Musa Ilallah, made the pledge when he paid a sympathy visit to the Federal College of Education (FCE), Kano, where the incident occured.
Ilallah said the agency would provide drugs and other medications for the treatment of all those injured in the attack.
‘‘NEMA has the obligation to support the victims so that it will encourage people to inform the agency when the need arises."
He, however, explained that the agency would not provide any financial assistance but only what the affected school and the victims needed.
