Residents of Gozaki ward in Nigeria’s North-east Katsina State, are still in shock following the community’s two-day continuous snowfall over the weekend.
Although no lives were lost during the snowfall, there are fears that the snow may affect the growth of crops in the community.
There are fears that such crops as maize, millet, rice, soybeans, and pepper that are grown in large quantity in the community may be destroyed because of the snowfall.
The Council Chairman of the LGA, Alhaji Garba Kanya, along with the District Head, Alhaji Abdulrahman Rabe, and top council officials visited the affected area and the affected farmlands at the weekend for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation.
While sympathising with the affected farmers and the Gozaki Community over the development, the council chairman urged them to proceed with caution.
