Three persons were killed while foodstuff and cash crops worth millions of Naira were washed away during a heavy downpour in Hayin Gwarmai village in Bebeji Local Government Area of Kano State on Sunday.

The Chairman of the Local Government, Alhaji Mudansiru Bebeji, told newsmen in Kano on Monday that the flood also washed away several farms in the area.

Bebeji said a number of houses had also been destroyed during the disaster.

He said he had since paid a sympathy visit to the victims of the disaster and called on the Federal state governments to come to the aid of the victims to alleviate their sufferings.

We are calling on the Federal and Kano State governments to assist the victims to reduce their sufferings,” he said.
