No fewer than 50 people have been killed while many were displaced in a flood outbreak in Jigawa State.

The Executive Secretary of the State’s Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Sani Yusuf, disclosed this while briefing newsmen in Dutse, the state capital, on Sunday.

He explained that the flood also destroyed thousands of houses, adding that this has forced many residents to seek refuge in government buildings.

He said the state government had opened 11 temporary camps for the displaced people.
