Each of the victims got two-third of what they lost to the flood.
The Zamfara State Government said on Thursday that it had spent N180 million to assist flood victims in the state.
Atiku Maradun, the Executive Secretary, Zamfara State Emergency Management Agency (ZEMA), said this during an interview in Gusau.
Mr. Maradun said that the agency distributed between N50,000 and N400,000 to each victim, depending on the extent of damages and loses.
He further said that each victim got two-thirds of what they lost during the flood, adding that no victim was left out.
The agency, he said, had assisted more than 1,500 victims in the 14 local government areas in the state with cash as well as distributed 5,000 bags of assorted food, ranging from one bag to four bags.
When contacted, one of the victims, Musa Malisu of Gutsura Village, confirmed receiving assistance from the agency.
Also, Abdullahi Usman of Gangaren Kwata area, Gusau, confirmed receiving the assistance, saying: “it was not enough.”
Usman, however, called for more assistance from the Zamfara and Federal Governments.
