At least 2,667 houses, farmlands, roads, and bridges have been claimed by flood in 17 local government areas in Niger state.

Naija News understands that the Director-General of Niger State Emergency Management Agency (NSEMA), Alhaji Ahmed Inga, disclosed this during an interview in Minna, the Niger state capital on Thursday.

Inga said that most of the buildings, roads, and bridges were completely washed away by flooding across the local governments.

Inga said that poultries, culverts, primary schools, clinics, fish ponds, and health facilities were also affected.
The flood comes as a result of the series of downpour in the state.

The NEMA DG said that the incidents occurred between August and September, adding that the agency was still receiving more reports on the flood incidents in the state.

He named some of the affected local governments as; Rafi, Gurara, Paikoro, Suleja, Agaie, Katcha, Kontagora, Gbako, and Shiroro. Other affected areas include Bosso, Chanchaga, Mashegu, Edati, Lavun, Lapai and Mokwa.

The director-general added that the report on the incident had been submitted to the governor to provide support to the affected persons and hence adequate solution to prevent further reoccurrence.
