According to Yusuf Sani, head of the Jigawa State Emergency Management Agency, the disaster has caused damage to the area of the Kafinhausa local government, such as the destruction of several houses.

"Six people lost their lives and 65 others who sustained injuries in the disaster have been hospitalized," said the official.

Sani has explained that the agency is carrying out heritage exercises to determine the extent of destruction caused by the windstorm.

Some people were forced to displace, some finding refuge with their relatives, waiting for a temporary shelter that the agency would provide.
