Sympathizers paying visits to victims of the flooding

Fa’ika, on behalf of the State Government, sympathized with the families of the victims, while calling on others residing in flood-prone areas to vacate. She made this call following the information from the Nigerian Metrological Agency who earlier earmarked seven local government areas of the state for flooding.

Visiting the scene of the flood, the authorities of the Zamfara State Emergency Management Agency commiserated with the victims and assured them of the State Government’s intervention in their plight.

Two of the victims, Ebok Edet and Mubarak Sani shared their experiences during the unfortunate incident and explained that the downpour left several roads flooded and many houses submerged as the shallow drains could not withstand the volume of water.

They renewed their appeal to the State Government to fix the roads and expand the drainages so as to curb the devastations of the flooding.
