Former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Danbazau (rtd), yesterday urged Nigerian leaders to give back what is due to the nation by supporting survivors of the Boko Haram insurgency who are now refugees in different camps across the country.
The ex-Army chief who is also the Chairman Board of Trustees of the Foundation for the Victims of Child Abuse, VCAF, stated this while donating relief materials to refugees at the Kuchin-goro rehabilitation camp in Abuja. He urged well to do individuals and corporate bodies to join government in the campaign against terrorism in the nation.
Nigerian Pilot gathered that no fewer than 873 victims of seven groups were in the rehabilitation camp ‎even as their leader, Mr. Philemon Emmanuel from Gwoza village appealed to the government and the military to re-double their efforts towards bringing the attack to an end and return them back to their respective communities.
Danbazau, who spoke through VCAF’s vice chairman Board of Trustees, ‎Professor Tajudeen Akanji, challenged people who have benefitted tremendously from the nation’s wealth to always compliment government’s intervention in the rehabilitation of the victims of Boko Haram attack in the north eastern part of the country.
According to him, ‎”What we are doing today is trying to make significant impact in the lives of our people who are suffering in the hands of insurgents and eventually displaced from their homes thereby seeking refuge for survival. We are here to present bags of rice, roofing sheets, indomie noodles, exercise books, mosquito nets as well as clothes among others.
‎”We are working round the clock to ensure that this intervention programme goes round the victims whose houses have been ravaged by the insurgency attacks. Arrangement is also on top gear to get in touch with Governors of the affected states in order to get statistics of the level of damages in their communities respectively with a view to finding succour for them.”
