Taraba Flood

Residents of Gashaka Local Government Area of Taraba State have been sacked by floods.

They are counting their losses after heavy rainfall that lasted about six hours on Sunday.

According to DailyPost, several houses were submerged and goods worth millions of Naira were washed away, including farm produce and domestic animals.

The residents of the area urged the state government and the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, to come to their aid. They also called on National Assembly members representing the zone to assist them.

Dauda Ali, who claimed that his farm had been washed away by the flood that ravaged Serti, headquarters of the council and its environs, said his dreams and that of other farmers experiencing bumper harvest had been cut short by the flood.

He lamented that the money spent on farms was loaned from cooperatives and individuals.

Another resident, Suleiman Abba who deals in animal rearing said goats and sheep were nowhere to be found since the flood ravaged the community.

Some of the victims, who are taking shelter in public places, said the flood was due to the lack of drainages in the area.
