Over 60 Houses, Possessions Are Destroyed By Heavy Flood In Nasarawa

Following a heavy flooding in two of the state’s Local Government Areas, no fewer than sixty houses and possessions worth millions of naira have been destroyed in Nasarawa State.
Zachary Allumaga, the director general of the state emergency management agency, revealed this while addressing reporters in Lafia on Saturday.
He explained that in August 2023, flood disasters in the two LGAs of Lafia and Toto left numerous citizens homeless and destroyed valuable possessions that belonged to the victims.
According to the DG, the flood incident in Lafia affected the student’s residential area (Off-campus) at the Federal University of Lafia and destroyed properties such as computers, mattresses, books, food items and other valuables.
While explaining further, Allumaga said another flooding was recorded in Toto LGA where about 60 houses were submerged and several properties destroyed.
The NASEMA DG noted that plans were under way to provide relief supplies to the affected communities and the Federal University off-campus in Lafia after stating that the flooding in Toto LGA was caused by gully erosion in the region.
The Agency’s commitment to fulfilling its responsibility to prevent and mitigate disasters through awareness campaigns, the evacuation of victims, and the provision of relief supplies for those affected by disasters was further reaffirmed by him.
