Flood kills 3 in Kebbi state

A flood which followed a heavy downpour that lasted several hours has led to the death of three persons at Dakingari area of Suru Local Government in Kebbi State. Chairman of Suru Local Government Area, Alhaji Muhammad Lawal Suru said the flood lasted for several hours and it also destroyed properties worth millions of naira. Suru said;  After the heavy rain, the water coming down from the mountains around the town of Dakingari contributed to the flooding.For over twenty years, we have been battling with the flood when it rains every year. The past administrations of Nasamu Dakingari and Atiku Bagudu constructed drainages in the town to solve the problem but didnt stop the flood from occurring every year. The local government Chairman who called on people of the area to desist from erecting buildings on waterways and culverts as well as dumping of refuse, also said that flood might be prevented if a concrete fence and outlet could be constructed around the mountains. The post Flood kills 3 in Kebbi state appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
