The Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency (ADSEMA) reports that at least 2,000 people were affected by flooding during the week across the state.

Dr. Mohamed Suleiman, the agency's executive secretary, told the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) on Wednesday in Yola that 227 homes and 300 farmland had been destroyed by the flood.

According to him, 850 victims and 161 houses are in the Dukhu district of the local government province of Madagali. He said people were displaced due to heavy rains on Tuesday, which severely damaged agricultural land and homes.

Suleiman recalled that between 11 and 12 August, more than 150 agricultural land and about 66 houses were destroyed by flooding in the village of Lababiri, local Shelleng district.

"In less than a week, the agency recorded two severe floods that affected about 227 homes, 300 farmland and more than 2,000 people in the state," said the executive secretary.

He assured that the agency and other related organizations are working to help the affected communities.
