The Sokoto State Emergency Management Agency said the flood that occurred in Butuku-Babba village of Bodinga Local Government Area on June 25 destroyed 115 houses.

The Director-General of the agency, Alhaji Hassan Maccido, made the disclosure at a news conference in Sokoto on Wednesday while reacting to pleas by victims of the disaster for urgent assistance.

Maccido said the agency had dispatched a technical team to the village and had since assessed the extent of damage during the flooding.

He added, “It was based on the team’s report that we sent a memorandum to Governo Aminu Tambuwal on what to provide as relief materials to the victims.

“The governor had since approved some money, which we will use to buy the items and donate to the victims as soon as possible.’’

According to him, the items include building materials and food items to alleviate the sufferings of the victims.

The director-general appealed to the victims to be patient with government as it would soon come to their aid.

Some of the victims had lamented that 13 days after the disaster, only one businessman based in Bodinga town, Alhaji Sahabi Bojo, had assisted them with N200,000.

The Hamlet Head of the area, Alhaji Magaji Mallam, and another victim, Malam Barmo Abubakar, called for urgent assistance from the three tiers of government and other emergency management agencies
