Council Chairman Alhaji Muhammed Abubakar Agufa said hundreds of residents lost their homes while hundreds of farmlands in the area were destroyed.

He lamented that the incident has become a yearly occurrence, the result of blockages in the Hadejia river by typha grass.

WAPLOADED learned that other structures such as the police station, mosques, schools and Hospitals were also submerged.

The situation has forced local government officials including the council chairman to operate from home while the police have resorted to using trees as a temporary shelter.
