NEMA pledges to assist victims of Kano bomb attack

19 September 2014, 17:35

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.

Ilallah who sympathised with the school management over the incident, prayed for the quick recovery of the injured students.

NEMA officials had also visited the victims of the attack at the Murtala Muhammed Hospital.

Official figures indicate that 15 persons were killed and 34 others injured in the attack.
