Executive Secretary, Benue State Emergency Management Agency, Dr Emmanuel Shior, made the disclosure in Makurdi on Wednesday at the monthly distribution of relief materials to Internally Displaced Persons.

He listed affected parts of the Benue capital as Naka Road, Achusa Kucha Utebe, Gyado Villa, Judge’s Quarters Extension and parts of Nyiman among others.

Shior noted that flooding was not this terrible in the state in the past.

He assured that the state’s Committee on Floods had approved the expansion of selected camps in Makurdi, Guma and Logo to accommodate flood victims.

He added that recent attacks on some communities in the state had resulted in the displacement of more than 400,000 people.

He said the state government was catering to the victims and to refugees from Cameroon staying in Kwande Local Government Area of the state.

He appealed to the Federal Government to assist as the burden was becoming cumbersome for the state government.

Shior said assailants killed and maimed and also destroyed infrastructures such as markets, churches, and schools in communities attacked.
