Gov. Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi has donated NI6 million to three families who lost their lives in a fire outbreak in the state.
The Chairman of Board of the State Emergency Management Agency, Alhaji Sani Dododo, made this known in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.
Dododo listed the beneficiaries as the families of Alhaji Mallami Abdulkadir who lost five children in the fire outbreak; Walida Nasiru and Abdul-Samed Nadir who received N10 million each from the State Government.
He added that the family of late Alhaji Farouk Umar and his wife who lost their lives in the fire incident received N5 million while Malam Danjuma Danganwo got N1 million.
The board chairman said that the assistance was part of the state government’s commitment to the victims to cushion the lost of their loved ones, but not compensation for the lives lost.
