The Executive Secretary, State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Sani Yusuf, said the flood destroyed thousands of homes in the state.
He stated that the situation forced Jigawa residents to take refuge in other places, which include government buildings.
It gathered that the state government accommodated many displaced persons in 11 temporary camps.
Some of the victims are drawn from Balangu village where no fewer than 237 houses were destroyed with four people dead.
“We have so many displaced persons about 11 temporary camps. In Balangu alone 237 houses have been damaged and they are now living in a temporary camp,” Yusuf said.
“Four people also died in that same village, after the six in Kafin Hausa. So, when you go around the state we lost about 50 people to the flood now. Even yesterday, seven people from the same family died.”
