In a telephone chat with our correspondent, the President of the Bandawa Community Development Association, Mathias Manyi, he called on those affected to remain calm as efforts were being put in place to get the presence of both the state and the federal government.

The President who could not say the cause of the inferno as of the time of filing this report, beckoned on the authorities to assist the victims in view of the devastating effect of the fire disaster.

Also speaking to our correspondent, a lecturer at the State university who hails from the community, Professor Nicholas Namesan Oliver described the incident which has compelled the people to seek for refuge in nearby communities and public places as “unfortunate.”

He was, in spite of that, optimistic that the state governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku would intervene, stating that “I know our Governor would have compassion on us and come to our rescue.

Narrating his ordeals, one of the victims who gave his name as Ishaka, said “what pains me most was the loan I went and collected, which I used in my farm that has now been razed down.”

Ishaku and some of the victims who are now fervently seeking for helping hands said “with this situation, one can be forced to commit suicide because I don’t even know how I am going to repay the loan.”
