Flood victims in Mozambique and Zimbabwe have received relief materials from the Nigerian government following the life-threatening rain that affected some communities in April.
According to the Nigerian Air Force, the airlifting of relief materials to the two countries is completed.
Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.
He said the airlift missions were conducted for the National Emergency Management Agency.
He said, “The airlift missions, which were conducted for the National Emergency Management Agency, conveyed critical relief materials such as drugs, medical supplies and treated mosquito nets donated by Nigeria to alleviate the sufferings of the flood victims.
“The airlift missions were executed in furtherance of the NAF’s constitutional roles of projecting air power beyond the shores of the country as well as providing military aid to civil authority.”
Speaking further, Daramola said the NAF aircrew and NEMA officials handed over the items to officials from the Nigeria High Commission in the two countries for onward delivery to their host governments.
