NEMA Donates Items To Gombe Blast VictimsThe National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has donated medical consumables worth millions of Naira to victims of the bomb blast at two Motor parks in Gombe State, north-east Nigeria.

The items donated by NEMA on behalf of the Federal Government came as part of measures to enhance their speedy treatment.

The donation was made by the Director General of NEMA, Dr Mohammed Sidi, on Sunday, when he visited the victims at the Federal Medical Centre, Gombe, in company of the State Governor, Ibrahim Dakwambo.

He said his visit was to assess the impact of the blast and also commiserate with the State government and people of Gombe State over the unfortunate incident.

He prayed for the quick recovery of the injured ones and commended the hospital management for its prompt intervention in trying to save the lives of the victims.

Governor Dakwambo expressed shock that the suicide bombers could gain access inside the motor park, despite the water tight security put in place by the motor park officials.

He then promised that the State government would bear the cost of treatment of the victims, advising transport workers to ensure adequate security at their various motor parks so as to avoid future attacks by the insurgents.

The Chief Medial Director of the hospital also assured Governor Dakwambo and the NEMA officials that the victims were in stable condition.
