Rainstorm destroys 40 houses in Kebbi

A Sunday night rainstorm has destroyed 40 houses, and rendered 200 people homeless in Makera Village in the Fadama Zauro Development Area of Kebbi.

A statement by the Director of Social Development in the area, Salihu Mohammed, said on Monday in Birnin Kebbi that the storm occurred late on Sunday night.

The statement said that many people, including primary and secondary school pupils, whose schools were affected, have been forced to seek refuge elsewhere pending when assistance would reach them.

The statement said that schools and primary healthcare centres (PHC) were affected by the storm.

“While no life was lost, residents of the affected households lost property, food stuff and other valuables to the storm,’’ the statement said.

Mr. Mohammed noted that the area was also affected by rainstorm last year.

Fadama Zauro Development Area was carved out of Arewa Local Government Area of the state.
