Torrential rains displace over 200 Zabzugu residents

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]ver 200 residents of Zabzugu in the Northern region have been rendered homeless after torrential rains wrecked havoc on their properties, Thursday.

The rainstorm that lasted for hours also ripped off the roofing of about 28 houses. 
According to the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), the rainstorm also ripped off the roofing of two basic schools.

The schools; Lainja D/A and Nuriya Primary School have been badly damaged compelling school authorities to combine classrooms for teaching and learning to continue while they wait on support from NADMO.
The assemblyman for Lainja Lugima electoral area, Iddrisu Luqman, tells Joy News the residents are overwhelmed by the extent of destructions to their properties.
“People are staying with their relatives and friends. We are appealing to the NADMO coordinator and the district assembly to come and do it quickly for people to get somewhere to put their heads. People are frustrated and living helplessly for now,” said Luqman.   

District Chief Executive for Zabzugu, Issifu Alidu Laa-Bandow said the assembly is making an effort together with NADMO to get some relief items for affected persons.
He said they paid a visit to the school to see the extent of the damage. 
“We see it as an emergency situation and the Assembly will soon go and re-roof the school because the pupils have to join the others in another class which makes the class is congested,” said DCE Laa-Bandow​
