The Bauchi State Emergency Management Agency (BASEMA) has confirmed that flood washed away over 100 houses in Darazo, the headquarters of Darazo Local Government Area.

The acting director general overseeing the agency, Alhaji Bala Yakubu Lame, confirmed the incident Saturday in Bauchi when answering questions from reporters.

He said emergency officials will visit the town today to ascertain the extent of damages done to the communities and to assist them.

A member representing Darazo Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Kawuwa Shehu Damina, said the flood destroyed property worth millions of naira.

Damina said, “It’s a pity. When we went round the town, we saw how the flood damaged people’s foodstuff, fertilizers and many valuables, while many mud houses were destroyed.”
