Two persons drowned while seven others were rescued after a boat carrying them capsized at Miga Local Government Area of Jigawa State.
The Jigawa State Police Public Relations Officer, Lawan Adam, who made this known via a statement issued on Tuesday, said the incident occurred when nine farmers were returning from home between Galauchime to Sansani village in Miga LGA of the state.
“On reaching a river, they boarded a canoe paddled by one Ado Dan Maguga to sail to Sansani but unfortunately it capsised due to the rain and windstorm.
“Seven people were rescued while the other two were not.
“The two people that were found dead are; Imran Rabiu, 12 years and Tasiu Rabiu, 14 years and their corpses were found and released to their family for burial,” Adam said.
Heavy downpour and eventual flood have recently wrecked havoc in many Jigawa communities with the latest being the last week displacement of hundreds in karnaya village in Dutse LGA.
