A nine-year-old girl identified as Hassana Aliyu of Kasarau Yamma quarters in Dutse, Jigawa State, lost her life after falling into a well.

Alhaji Ahmed Danyaro, the Director, Jigawa State Fire Directorate, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse on Friday that the incident occurred at around 1:30pm on Thursday.

Danyaro said, “Nobody can ascertain how the deceased fell into the well as we just received a distress call that she has fallen into the well in their home.

“On receiving the information, we quickly sent our rescue team which discovered her unconscious. She was later confirmed dead at hospital.”

He said that the deceased’s corpse had since been handed over to her parents for burial.

The director advised parents who have wells in their homes to raise their height and provide covers for them to protect their children and wards.

According to him, the agency will continue to sensitise the public on how best to use wells at homes.
