200 Kogi Communities Submerged By Flood
Fri, 14 Sep 2018

No fewer than 200 communities have been submerged by flood in Kogi/Koton-karfe local government area of Kogi State. With the communities already washed away by ravaging flood that has displaced thousands of residents in the communities, the state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, yesterday made a passionate appeal to the federal government and public spirited individuals to come to the aide of the state, in the effort to assuage the plight of victims of the natural disaster. Kogi, being a confluence of Nigeria’s two main rivers- River Niger and River Benue-is always one of the most affected states whenever there is flooding, which explains why the state was worst hit during the flood disaster in 2012.

LEADERSHIP recalls that the Kogi State government had last month set up five camps to accommodate about 64 of the communities displaced by flood in Koton-karfe last month. This week, the state government further set up temporary camps for victims of flood in Lokoja, as more houses get submerged in the confluence state. Addressing journalists in Government House, Lokoja yesterday, Governor Bello said after visiting the communities ravaged by the flood and seeing the humanitarian crisis created by the disaster, he is compelled to cry out for help to cushion the effect of the mishap as well as providing succour for the victims. According to Governor Bello, “the state government has overstretched its resources in the wake of the misfortune”, even as he noted that 10 out of 25 local governments in the state have been submerged by the flood. While commending the collaboration of the Navy, Police, Civil Defence and other relevant agencies in the rescue operations, he urged people living on the flood plains to relocate to safer grounds. Governor Bello assured that every intervention coming to the state will be effectively and judiciously used. On the efforts made by the state so far, Bello noted that on its part, the state government has created relief camps in the affected areas to provide temporary shelter for the victims, in addition to food, Medicare and other logistics. “We are already collaborating with all relevant stakeholders to ensure that relief materials and other essential facilities are provided in the camps”, he stated. Expressing worry about a recent alert that more water would be released from Kainji and Shiriro dams, as well as Ladgo dam in Cameroon, the governor lamented that if it turn out to be a reality, it will worsen the situation for the state as it grapples with the disaster.
