The Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, 21 Brigade, 2nd Lieutenant Chinonso Oteh, stated this in a statement issued in Maiduguri.
He said that the items were presented to the displaced persons by the outgoing Commander, 152 Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Elayo.
Elayo was quoted as saying that the gesture was part of civil-military relations aimed at assuaging the plight of the IDPs and improving their living condition.
He called on the IDPs to be law abiding, cooperate with the military and report suspicious movement and persons to the appropriate authorities.
