However, the parents of the deceased recounted that the late Shakur Yusif died on arrival at the hospital due to lack of transportation.
They made known that if the community had access to telecommunication, the situation wouldn’t have happened.
Meanwhile, some teachers complained of the lack of network in the area which is affecting teaching and learning and have therefore appealed to network service providers to come to their aid.
