The Zamfara State Emergency Management Agency on Monday said 18 women were delivered of their babies at Gatsura flood victims camp.

The victims are camped at Gyalenge Township Primary School in Gummi Local Government Area.
Maradun said that the deliveries were recorded in the last three months.
He said that each of the 17 women gave birth to single babies while one had a set of twins.
