The Hungarian government has decided to provide 420 million forints (EUR 1.3m) to help the reconstruction of four schools and a hospital in Maiduguri in north-eastern Nigeria, the human resources minister said on Wednesday.

The assistance will be given in response to the call made by Nigerian Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme to the Hungarian prime minister during his visit to Budapest in July, Zoltán Balog told MTI.

Balog cited the bishop as saying that the Boko Haram terrorist organisation had not only murdered Nigerians, many of them Christians, but had destroyed local infrastructure as well.
