Flood caused by hours of heavy downpour last Thursday in Kaduna has claimed the lives of two brothers.

The boys were said to be within the range of 12 to 16 years of age.


It was gathered from neighbours at Ungwar Pama where family of the deceased reside that the duo had been declared missing after the rain on Thursday.

“You know it rained almost throughout Thursday; so, the two brothers went out during the rain and did not come back home. The boys are the only children of their parents,” a neighbour said.


Further investigation revealed that their corpses were found by local divers in a river somewhere at Narayi, an area in Chikun local government area of the state.

There was so much wailing and weeping when the remains of the two brothers were brought home before they were conveyed to Sabo cemetery for burial.

When contacted, the executive secretary of Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Ben Kure said his agency has not gotten any information about the incident.

“We have not established any contact with any family on the issue you are talking about, so I cannot comment for now,” he said.
