Kaduna Emergency Agency warns residents to quit flood-prone areas


The Kaduna State Ministry of Environment and Emergency Management Agency (KASEMA) have sent warning to living around flood-prone areas to evacuate their homes.

The agency warns that there’s a likelihood of flooding to occur as the rains intensify.

The State Commissioner for Environment, Ibrahim Husseini, says the warnings are important in order to avoid a recurrence of such unfortunate incidents.

This warning is coming after several persons were killed in Niger State, when some communities were ravaged by flood.

In a similar manner, hundreds were displaced in Jigawa State after some communities were hit by flood.

In  2018 alone, over 500 houses were submerged in flood and many residents were displaced  in areas like Going Gora,  Kamazo,  Karatudu,  kigo Road,  Ungwar Rimi,   Rafin Guza,  Romi and Zaria  among others, as a result of their refusal to heed to early warnings by emergency agencies.
