In line with Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya’s directive, the two communities of Nyuwar and Jessu in Balanga Local Government area today received delivery of relief materials to cushion their suffering following the recent attacks on them which claimed many lives and left many property incinerated.

Presenting the food items and other essential materials to the representative of the district head of Nyuwar, the Commissioner of Internal Security and Ethical Orientation, Adamu Dishi Kupto said having visited Jessu and Nyuwar communities to assess the level of damage, the Governor of Gombe state expressly approved the delivery of relief materials to alleviate the sufferings of those affected.
Flanked by the Commissioner of Special Duties, Christopher Abdu Buba Maisheru, Adamu Kupto said the food items provided were meant to address the immediate needs of the people as government mobilises resources for yet another intervention.
He assured the people of Nyuwar and Jessu communities that the administration of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya will continue to work with security agencies to ensure that perpetrators of the carnage are brought to justice.
While condemning the senseless killings and destruction of property in their entirety, the Commissioner of Internal Security and Ethical Orientation called for maximum retraint from both communities in order to de-escalate the tension.
The representative of the district head of Nyuwar, Mr. Yohanna Galmaka Pisagih who received the items on behalf of the community, thanked Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya for responding in record time to the plight of the people.
The Commissioner of Internal Security and his Special Duties counterpart were also in Jessu to present relief materials to the victims. The Galadiman Jessu, Mr. Goma Jesimel who stood in for the district head, received the items on behalf of the community.
