At least three people have been confirmed killed and many rendered homeless following heavy flooding that wreaked havoc in Zaki and Gamawa local government areas of Bauchi State at the weekend.
While farmlands and other valuables were washed away, roads and culverts, as well as bridges, were cut off thereby forcing residents of the areas affected to use canoes to be able to move from one side to another.
According to reports, the flood disaster also washed away six potions of the road linking Zaki and Gamawa local governments of the State.
During a visit to the affected LGs, Bauchi State Governor, Sen Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir lamented the extent of the devastation and called for a collective effort in addressing the devastating effects of the incessant flooding affecting communities across the state.
