Tuesday night rainstorms has caused great havoc on individual households and public institutions and also displaced many residents in Sissala West District.
Information Radford News gathered from NADMO office in Sissala West had 257 persons displaced and 14 households affected including Hilla Liman Senior High School and Gason academy, a private school. The storms has forced a shutdown of Gwollu FM as transmission tower of the station was brought down.
Radford FM visit to the scene today met the situation but the premises of the station is inaccessible except for the fallen wall where the tower fell towards. The in -charge Mr. Mubarik was earlier granted interview on Radford FM, however he is not able to say much about the situation until further notice.
The Hilla Liman Senior High school have portions of both boys and girls dormitories ripped off as well as the stores. Food stuff meant for the school feeding programme were all soaked in water and have been scooped but items such as bread flour have all gone waste.
The Assistant Headmaster Mr. Adama Abubakari expressed the need for an urgent intervention as students were asked to vacate affected buildings and will lead to undue congestion especially when first year’s arrives.
Since Tuesday night, Radford News team got to the school before electricity was restored. The Assistant headmaster recounts that the rains started about 8:00 PM and students rushed to dormitories and shortly after that students made some noise, drawing attention to the situation.
Free SHS food that came from buffer stock were soaked and I saw the headmistress herself trying to rescue food stuff from water he mentioned. NADMO was able gather data about the disaster and is heading to Wa for relief items to support the victims they revealed to the David Luri of RadfordFM.
