The Niger State Acting Governor, Ahmed Ketso, who paid a sympathy visit to the people disclosed that the government had directed the State Emergency Management Agency to immediately take inventory of losses and provide relief materials comprising of food and non-food items to cushion victims’ hardship.
Ketso further called on the Federal Government and relevant bodies to come and assist the state in addressing the unending disaster caused by flooding annually.
Speaking on behalf of the Dutsen Kura Hausa victims, Sanusi Mohammed, a businessman said, “Three persons have been carried away and must have died by now”.
A mother of three, Hadiza Rabiu, of Shanu village in Bosso LGA said she lost N40,000 worth of foodstuffs and personal effects to the flood.
“We were fast asleep when the flood came, I started calling for help to save my children. The flood took everything, our house collapsed and everything we have including over forty thousand naira have been washed away.
Please, Government should come to our aid,” she narrated.
Also, the Head of Shanu village, Ibrahim Musa, said, “When the rain started in the early hours of Saturday, I was happy and thanking God that it was going to be a rain of blessing because of our farms.
