Bello gave the names of the drivers as Umaru Hamidu, Iliyasu Hammangabdo and Adamu Modibbo.

Bello, said SFH and Transaid, an American NGO would, in collaboration with the state branch of NURTW, provide the over 800 volunteer drivers with necessary training.

He said the training would be carried out under Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) to enable them effectively provide such humanitarian services across the 21 local government areas of the state.

Bello said the training would commence this month with master trainers who were expected to later train other volunteer drivers from various local governments.

One of the drivers, Umaru Hamidu, when contacted by NAN, said he had been rendering informal voluntary service for more than over 10 years in Garkida village of Gombi Local Government.
