Zamfara: Flood destroys 110 houses

No fewer than 110 houses in Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State, were on Wednesday destroyed by flood.

The Special Adviser to Gov. Bello Matawalle on Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Fa’ika Ahmad, who confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gusau, said she led officials of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to conduct assessment of the affected victims.

“We thank God no lives were lost, but we recorded 110 affected households,” she said.

Fa’ika said the state government has donated 330 bags of assorted grains to the victims.

“Each of the affected households received three bags of assorted grains comprising Millet, Sorghum and Maize

“We are working to provide building and roofing materials to the affected victims, but we are giving much priority to the needy and the most vulnerable among the victims,” she explained.

She decried low awareness among public on proactive measures against disaster in the state.

She stated that her office was collaborating with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and other stakeholders to increase awareness on disaster management and proactive measures especially at communities across the state.

She commended the state government for the quick and timely response to the disaster victims.
