“We are approaching rainy season and some of these people now have their houses destroyed.
“All their property are out in the open and I really feel for them, especially when you consider the hard times we are in.
“One primary school had its roof completely taken off, and for some others, it was buildings housing goods that they sell that were destroyed by the rainstorm,” he said.
He, however, noted that though there was no death recorded, a few who sustained injuries were receiving treatment at the hospital.
According to him, the council is in the process of assessing the full extent of the damage with a view to working out relief packages to those affected.
“I have directed my director of works to go round the affected communities to make assessments of the extent of the damage.
“This is to enable us to prepare a report that we will send to Kaduna, to see if they can come and give the victims some emergency relief materials,” he said.
