Downpour sinks houses, shops in Benue

A midnight downpour on Friday left in its wake sinking of many residences and business premises in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

Our correspondent, who visited some of the flooded areas, including Wadata area of Gboko Road and Idye village saw affected residents moving out their belongings in frustration.

Some of the victims said that flooding in their areas was a yearly occurrence due to a poor drainage system and absolute lack of it in some parts.

A woman at Idye village, who simply identified herself as Ngunan, and a business woman, who gave her name as Mlumun, said they lost valuables to the flooding.
