14 People Lost Their Lifes As Flood Ravaged Niger State

“Salisu also appealed to residents of the state to desist from building on waterways and to stop the indiscriminate dumping of refuse to reduce the effect of flooding in the state.”

The Director Relief, Niger State Emergency Management Agency, Alhaji Garba Salisu, says 14 persons have so far died due to flooding in different part of the state.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Minna, he said that the agency had engaged the services of no fewer than 200 local divers in affected communities for rescue operations.

He said that the local divers would complement the efforts of agency rescue unit whenever the need arose.

Salisu also appealed to residents of the state to desist from building on waterways and to stop the indiscriminate dumping of refuse to reduce the effect of flooding in the state.

He also urged communities experiencing gully erosion to relocate whenever the threat of flood became high.

My major fear is that most rains are usually at night when the people are sleeping, but the only way is to create an environment for smooth flow of water’’, he said.

The director also called on communities that are prone to flooding too, as a matter of urgency, vacate the area temporarily to avoid disaster. (NAN)
