Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar on Sunday commiserated with the Bauchi residents over the windstorm which occurred in Bauchi on Saturday and wreaked havoc within the state capital.
Freedom Sunrise News gathered that about 30 people were said to have been feared dead following heavy windstorm in Bauchi metropolis and its environs late on Saturday.
Many houses were also completely destroyed by the windstorm, with many people critically injured as the rain which lasted several hours forced Muslim Ummah celebrating Ed-el fitir to retire home for safety.
Reacting, Atiku on his official Twitter page, offered condolence to the victims who lost their properties.
He described the incident as a tragedy.
The former Vice President tweeted “On behalf of my family, I extend my deepest condolences and solidarity to the good people and government of Bauchi State over the tragic loss of lives and property occasioned by Saturday’s windstorm.”
