Flood disaster hit about 100 communities in Niger State. Residential buildings and farmland were submerged by flood leaving the communities in the state of despair.
The video which was uploaded by the Channel TV show how the flood destroyed the farmlands and houses in the affected areas leaving residents of the affected communities homeless.
At the point of reporting, there is no life lost but properties worth several millions of Naira were destroy in the communities. Residents find a way to escape as the rain persists.
This comes weeks after the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA) issued a flood alert for seven states – Kebbi, Niger, Kwara, Kogi, Anambra, Delta, and Bayelsa – on the floodplains of River Niger.
The agency also warned that the steady rise in water levels and weather forecast in the coming weeks have put Nigeria at risk of witnessing a recurrence of catastrophic flooding similar to what it witnessed in 2012.
It, therefore, called on 12 states to be on alert with Edo, Taraba, Benue, Adamawa, and Rivers states joining the seven states previously put on alert.
