Kallon issued a press statement in Maiduguri on the need for the Humanitarian Community, the United Nations, and Non-Governmental Organisations to join efforts to address the rapidly deteriorating food insecurity situation in the North-East Region."Consequent to the above, the Commission swung into action and came up with a plan for the distribution of food items to address the rapidly deteriorating food insecurity situation in the North-East Region, starting with Borno State on 02/09/2021."Boko HaramInsurgencyTerrorismNewsAddThis:Original Author:SaharaReporters, New York Disable advertisements:
