Our correspondent, who visited the area, reports that the buildings were among several others that gave way following days of rainfall in parts of the north-western state.

Alhaji Salisu Garba-Kubayo, Chairman, Kirikasamma Local Government, who spoke on the development, said that the houses collapsed “during heavy rainfall”.
“Three persons – a mother, Halima Manu, her daughter, Aisha Manu, and son, Dauda Manu, were killed in Kuraduge village, while a man, Musa Wuliwuli, and his wife, Hauwa Musa, were killed in Madachi village.
“The rain also destroyed 200 houses in Kukadabu, 100 houses in Mattafari and 30 houses in Kuraduge,” he said, adding that most parts of the local government were affected by the flood disaster.

He called on the state and the federal governments to come to the aid of the victims.
“As we speak, more than 30 villages in Kirikasamma have been taken over by flood as a result of heavy rain.
“We have provided thousands of sacks to residents of these villages to erect sandbag embankments to check the flood; they have spent days and nights doing this.

“But, containing this problem is beyond our capacity; we want the Jigawa and Federal Government to come to our aid,” he pleaded
