The Kano State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has confirmed the death of four people and the destruction of more than 5,200 homes due to flooding in the Rogo and Danbatta local government areas of the state.

Sale Jili, Executive Secretary of the Agency, confirmed the incident in an interview with the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) on Saturday in Kano.

NAN reports that the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) has forecast floods caused by heavy rains in 20 local government areas of the state.

Jili revealed that two people were killed and 200 houses destroyed in Rogo, while another two people and more than 5,000 houses were destroyed by the floods in Danbatta.

“We deployed assessment teams to the affected areas. We also visited Rogo and Danbatta to sympathize with the victims of the disaster.

“There are reports of flooding in all 44 LGAs in the state due to heavy rain this season,” he said.

According to him, the displaced people are currently sheltering with their families in the affected communities.

Jili said the Agency had distributed N3.5 million worth of relief items to affected people to alleviate their suffering.

He listed the items to include that the items distributed include cement bags, food, roofing sheets, blankets, mattresses, and toiletries, among others.

The Secretary urged state residents to clean drains and desist from indiscriminately dumping waste into waterways to control flooding in the state. (YAYA)
