The storm preceded a brief but heavy downpour, pulling down several houses and trees.
Presenting the building materials to the victims, the North West Zonal Coordinator of the Agency, Musa Ilallah, said that the gesture was part of government’s effort to assist the victims to rebuild their houses.
While describing the windstorm that affected over 100 houses as a natural disaster, the NEMA Zonal Coordinator expressed gratitude to God that no life was lost in the incident.
The NEMA boss also promised that the building materials would be judiciously distributed to the victims.
The leader of the community who received the materials on behalf of the victims, Abubakar Shehu, commended NEMA for the kind gesture.
Mr. Shehu also narrated how the windstorm, which lasted for only 30 minutes, removed roofing sheets and pulled down trees.
Some of the materials donated to the victims include roofing sheets, cement, roofing nails, and food items.
