Zamfara Residents Suffer Another Major Blow
Zamfara State has recorded series of bandit attacks this year, but in the last few days, the increasing heat also dealt a blow on two residents who lost their property to fire.
The Zamfara State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) on Tuesday said two major fire incidents, which occurred early this year destroyed houses worth millions of Naira in Gusau.
The Executive Secretary of the agency, Mr Sanusi Kwatarkwashi, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Gusau that the incidences occurred on January 11 and 12, respectively.
He said that the houses razed by the fire incidents belonged to the Managing Director, Zamfara Radio and Television Services, Mr Nuhu Anka and the Executive Secretary of the State Qur’an and Tajweed Board, Mr Hadi Sulaiman.
“We thank Allah, that the fire did not record any death or injury but all the houses were destroyed completely,” he said.
“We visited the houses to assess the level of damage, at Mr Nuhu Anka’s house, we valued the loss to about 11 million Naira, while at Malam Hadi Sulaiman’s house we valued the loss to about 7 million Naira.
“We have already compiled our reports and submitted to the state government to assist the victims,” he said.
He described the incidents as unfortunate and urged the victims to consider it as a test from Allah.
