Ruqayya Amin, the assistant chief administrative officer, represented Imam Garki, the North-West zonal coordinator of NEMA, during the delivery. She clarified that the federal government approved these relief materials not as compensation for the loss of lives and properties but as a token gesture to bring relief to the victims.

Emphasizing the importance of judicious use of the provided materials, Amin urged beneficiaries to utilize them appropriately to alleviate their plight. NEMA’s prompt response aims to provide immediate support to those affected by the bandit attack, acknowledging the urgency of the situation.

This intervention underscores the government’s commitment to assisting communities facing adversity, offering essential supplies to mitigate the challenges posed by the bandit attack. The relief efforts serve as a tangible expression of solidarity with the affected households, aiming to restore a sense of stability and hope in the aftermath of the tragic events in Saya community.
