Yobe rainstorm: Governor Buni commiserates with victims’ families


Yobe State Governor, Hon. Mai Mala Buni has commiserated with the families of five persons who died from building collapse following heavy rainstorm in Damaturu, the state capital.

Governor Buni said it is very sad to lose the victims in this very unfortunate natural disaster but that is the time decreed by the Almighty Allah.

He sympathised with those who sustained injuries and prayed for their quick recovery.

The governor who described the incident as sad and unfortunate, said it is the will of God.

“We pray to Allah (SWT) to forgive their shortcomings and to grant their families the fortitude to bear the loss,” Buni prayed.

He directed the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to ensure treatment of those who sustained injuries and to provide the victims with emergency relief materials to cushion their hardship.

It could be recalled that five people were confirmed dead and many injured on Monday following a heavy downpour and thunderstorm in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
