Rainstorm has rendered residents of Iyara community in Ijumu local government area of Kogi State homeless and inflicting varying degrees of injuries on many.
According to our source, the rain which started around 4pm on Friday, destroyed some classrooms in the Community High School Iyara.
However, the source further explained that there was no loss of lives during the incident. Those injured are said to be receiving treatment at the community’s health centre at the time of filing this report.
The President of Iyara Development Association (IDA), Aliyu Badaki, described the incident as a real shock and unfortunate.
He therefore appealed to NEMA and SEMA to quickly intervene and cushion the effect of the disaster.
Badaki stressed that the damage done by the storm was massive and beyond what the community can handle.
