Kaduna Govt warns residents against flooding

The Kaduna State Government has called on the communities along the flood- prone areas of the state to be wary of being caught by flooding this wet season.

The General Manager, Kaduna Environmental Protection Authority (KEPA), Mallam Abdullahi Rigasa, made this appeal in Kaduna on Tuesday at an interaction with newsmen.

According to him, Kaduna Township has experienced flash floods at more than 30 locations in five Local Government Areas in August alone.

He predicted that rainstorm would equally be heavy in September as experienced on Monday.

‘‘It is no longer safe for residents living along River Kaduna, as the river is already overflowing its banks,’’ he said.
