The state commandant of the NSCDC, Mohammed Durimi Iya, representing the Comptroller-General, Abdullahi Gana, supported the Malkohi camp with 20 bags of rice and 5 cans of 25ltr of groundnut oil.
He commended the women for being hardworking and exhibiting high level of brilliancy to learn within the shortest possible time, attesting that their products are part of the best in the market.
Iya bought many of the products to support the women.
He revealed that NSCDC was one of the security agencies in the country that first took on the fight against insurgents, assuring that the NSCDC would continue to protect Nigerians from Boko Haram attacks.
