The people of Takum local government council of Taraba are counting their losses following the wind storm that wreaked havoc in several parts of the area on Tuesday.

The windstorm which was followed by a heavy downpour that lasted several hours, led to the massive destruction of houses.

Areas badly affected in the council, include Angwan Rogo, and Cameroon quarters to mention but just a few.


At the time of filing this report, business activities have been brought to a standstill as the people are still taking stock of their destroyed homes and other valuables.
