THE 70 trucks of grains sent to Adamawa State as part of the Presidential initiatives for victims of Boko Haram insurgency have been reported missing in transit, Vanguard investigation has revealed.

The revelations came against the backdrop that the few bags of grains that were distributed in the state some months back did not get to the targeted persons, but given out to party loyalists and their cronies. Recall that in June, the office of the Secretary to Government of the Federation, SGF, came to Adamawa State to flag off the distribution of grains allocated to the state.

During the ceremony, the SGF’s representative and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Policy Development and Analysis, Alhaji Ibrahim Bapetel, announced that 40 trucks were on ground for distribution at the time, promising that the remaining would arrive later.

Stakeholders and beneficiaries, who spoke to journalists in Yola yesterday, frowned at the way the distribution of the commodities was carried out, regretting that the commodities were distributed to relatives of distributors, instead of those the commodities were meant for.

A member of the National Assembly, representing Madagali and Michika Federal constituency, Adama Kamale, expressed worry that the commodities went into the wrong hands.
