Jigawa: Flood destroys 3,000 farmlands, 120 houses

WorldStage NewsOnline—- No fewer than 3,000 farmlands and about 120 houses have been destroyed by flood at Zugo town in Guri Local Government Area of Jigawa.
The Information Officer in the area, Alhaji Sanusi Doro said that the incident occurred in the late hours of Tuesday.
He said the flood had also washed away the Una-Zugobia road, hindering movement of people and farm produce to the market.
He called on the State Government and the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to assist the victims of the flood with food and drugs.
Doro, however, said the local government council had mobilised youths to erect sand-bag embankment at the bank of the Guri River to prevent more damages.
“The local government responded quickly by mobilising over 150 youths who were given over 1,000 sacks to erect sand-bag embankment at the bank of the river,” he said.
