<p class="">The flood, which resulted from days of downpour, also brought down nine houses pulled down.</p>

<h1>Three persons, including a pregnant woman, have been killed by flood that swept through some parts of Zinariya community in Jos, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports.</h1>

<p class="">The flood, which resulted from days of downpour, also brought down nine houses pulled down.</p>

<p class=""><em>“The incident resulted from narrow waterways; the victims were asleep when the rain started, but with the water soaking up foundations of their buildings, the structures collapsed on them</em>,” <strong>Sani Bello</strong>, a relation of the victims, told NAN on Thursday.</p>

<p class="">According to him, the water washed the bodies of the three deceased away.</p>

<p class=""><em>“My pregnant elder sister, who was on a visit from Naraguta, a nearby community, was among the people washed away by the flood.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“We have found her body and buried it. There is also a lady with a broken leg who has been taken to the hospital.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Another victim, one Ibrahim, who is seven years old, also sustained injuries and has been taken to the hospital,” </em>he said.</p>

<p class="">Meanwhile, Sen. <strong>Istifanus Gyang</strong> (PDP/Plateau North), has visited the area to commiserate with the people.</p>

<p class="">Gyang, who was represented by an aide, <strong>Daniel Dem</strong>, promised to assist the area with resources to rebuild their homes and map out waterways.</p>

<p class="">He also offered financial assistance to the affected families and urged the community to stop building houses along waterways so as to avoid a recurrence.</p>

<p class="">The Ward Head of the community, Mallam <strong>Yahaya Abubakar</strong>, who received the items, commended the Senator for his show of concern.</p>

<p class=""><em>“You are the first government official to come to the aid of my community. May God continue to bless you for this kindness,”</em> he said.</p>

<p class="">He regretted the damage caused by perennial flooding in the area, and urged government to take urgent measures to mitigate that.</p>

<p class="">One of the beneficiaries of Gyang’s gesture, Malam <strong>Mohammed Kamilu</strong>, while appreciating the kindness, said that the money would be of great assistance to the victims.</p>

<p class=""><em>“Some of the victims lost practically everything. This assistance will help them to restart life all over again,” </em>he said.</p>
