Network of Civil Society Organisation, Borno state has commended security agencies in the country for their relentless effort in securing and protecting the territorial sovereignty.

The group’s Chairman, Ahmed Shehu said this at a news briefing in Abuja to commemorate World Humanitarian Day.

Shehu said Boko Haram was in its 10th year, which led to the death of over forty thousand people and displacing about three million people. He said the casualty was usually soft target, innocent victims and aids workers, saying the day was for a sober reflection to remember the humanitarians who lost their lives in the line of duty.

This year’s campaign was on Women Humanitarians, which supported the recognition that women deserved in strengthening of global humanitarian response as well as in protection efforts under the international law.

The Executive Director, Women In the New Nigeria and Youth Empowerment Initiative, Lucy Yunana called on the Federal Government to continue in its efforts in rebuilding the North East, adding that there should be special subvention for the region.
