Yobe’s cemetery and buildings are washed away by a flood


Yobe’s Low-Cost Cemetery has been washed away by floodwaters triggered by days of non-stop rains, which also destroyed buildings in the Gashua Local Government Area.

This was confirmed by Alhaji Kaku Bulama-Bukar, the Community Development Officer for the Gashua Local Government Council, on Tuesday in Gashua.

It has been raining heavily in Gashua town since Friday, according to the mayor, and some bodies have been exposed in the cemetery as a result of the downpour, which began on July 9. As we speak, many buildings are being demolished, and our cemetery is being submerged underwater.

The spokesman added that some graves were even exposed and that some people were forced to flee their homes in order to save their lives. Bulama-Bukar

The officer stated that the council was compiling a list of the individuals and houses who had been impacted by the disaster.

“As soon as we have completed our assessment of the damage and the people who have been impacted, we will submit our report to the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and the council for consideration.

“I can assure you that relief material, as well as other forms of assistance, will be provided to the affected individuals,” he said in his statement. (NAN)
