— ceoafrica (@ceoafrica) August 24, 2018
The flooding occurred after a downpour on Thursday evening which lasted till Friday morning. As a result, many residents have been forced out of their homes.
The incident comes weeks after the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), had issued an alert that some Local Government Areas in the state were likely to experience flooding.
NEMA had warned residents of the affected areas to vacate to safer places; a warning which some failed to adhere to.
The affected areas include Abubakar Kigo road, Barnawa, Kudenda, Karatudu, Narayi, Sabon Tasha, among others.
According to the emergency officials, those areas were prone to flooding as a result of drainages being blocked with refuse, and people building structures along water channels.
