Speaking at a meeting held in Sokoto on the damages caused by flood in those states, Thickman Tanimu, the agency’s zonal deputy head, said 10 of the victims died in Zamfara while a seven-year old boy died in Sokoto state.

Tanimu said more than 86, 710 hectares were destroyed in Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states.

According to him, a total of 20, 477 homes were also affected, rendering about 50, 000 people homeless.
Tanimu said the agency had provided food and other essential materials to assist the victims as part of the initial Federal Government’s intervention.

He attributed the high level of losses to the release of water from Bakalori and Goronyo dams located in Zamfara and Sokoto states respectively. Enditem
