Flood: Adamawa government urges residents to relocate to safer places


Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), has appealed to people residing in flood-prone areas in the state to relocate to safer places to avoid flooding.

Dr Muhammad Suleiman, Executive Secretary of the agency, made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Saturday.

Suleiman said that the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NiMet) had predicted flooding in some areas of the state this year.

He also called on the people to stop indiscriminate dumping of waste in waterways, as such contributed to flooding.
