EU provides N4bn relief for Boko Haram victims

The European Commission has provided €21m (about N4.7bn) to help the populations in Nigeria and neighbouring countries that are affected by the violence inflicted by Boko Haram.                          
In a statement on Saturday, the EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides, while on a visit to Nigeria, said, “More than 1.7 million people have been displaced by the terror of Boko Haram. Many of them live in precarious conditions in other parts of Nigeria or the neighbouring countries where they have fled.”
“Meeting some of them, I saw with my eyes the immense needs that the conflict is causing among civilians. We are stepping up our humanitarian response to the call of those in the greatest need.”
“Of this funding, €12.5m will be used to tackle the humanitarian challenges in Nigeria, and €8.5m to support the refugees in Niger, Cameroon and Chad,” the EU commissioner explained.
