Four hundred houses were destroyed by rainstorm as a result of downpour in two villages in Albasu Local Government Area of Kano State.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the rainstorm also destroyed primary schools and clinics in the Faragai.

The North-West Zonal Co-ordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Malam Musa Ilallah,  confirmed the damage on Monday, June 29, 2015, in Kano shortly after visiting the affected villages.

He said though no life was lost, 500 persons were affected by the disaster which happened on Thursday June 25 and Friday, June 26, 2015.

He said that some of the victims who got minor injuries had since been treated and discharged from the clinics.

“We have already compiled the number of the affected houses and found out that some of them were completely destroyed while others were partially affected,” he said.

Ilallah said the agency would forward its report to the Federal Government for immediate assistance to the victims of the disaster.
