Acting Executive Secretary, Nigerian Shippers’ Council, Mrs Dabney Shalhoma, at the weekend donated relief materials to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Hong local council of Adamawa State.

Making the presentation in Gombi town, Shalhoma said the gesture was aimed at identifying with the IDPs and give them a sense of belonging during this season.
Shalhoma, who hails from Garha village, said she was also a victim of Boko Haram insurgency, adding that she lost some of her relations and property to attacks by the terrorists.
She said: “It is regrettable and sad that human begins are experiencing this kind of situation caused by other human beings. It is unfortunate that the most defenceless people are the victims of this dastardly act.
 “I will continue to visit you and keep encouraging you; this is just my first visit, I will continue to come and see you. In life, whenever you fall, you rise again; we know there is a lot of psychological trauma, but we shall surely overcome it.”
The acting executive secretary urged the people to be vigilant and conscious of their environment, adding that security of lives and property should not be left to security personnel alone.
Receiving the materials, the District Head of Garha, Mr Ibrahim Bulus, lauded the gesture and urged others to emulate the council to complement government efforts.
