National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has donated medical equipment for the treatment of survivors of Tuesday’s twin bomb blasts in Mubi, Adamawa.
The attack on a Mosque and a market left at least 69 dead and scores critically injured.
Mr Abbani Imam, the NEMA Officer-In-Charge of Adamawa and Taraba, presented the equipment to the management of Mubi General Hospital on Friday in Mubi.
He made the presentation on behalf of Alhaji Mustapha Maihaja, the Director General of NEMA.
Imam said the emergency medical intervention was a directive from Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to assist in treating the injured.
He added that “Vice President Yemi Osinbajo directed the agency to supply all necessary medical equipment to bring relief to victims of Tuesday’s Mosque and market bomb blasts.”
He noted that equipment donated included surgery items and drugs, explaining that
some drugs were also supplied to Federal Medical Centre, Yola, where many critically injured in the blasts were referred to for treatment.
Dr Terry Dauda, the Chief Pharmacist of the hospital who received the equipment, commended Federal Government for the intervention.
Dauda said the donation was timely and would go a long way in saving lives of many critically injured victims.
