Yobe State Government has ordered the immediate evacuation of Usur and Gasma communities threatened by flood in Bade and Karasuwa local government areas.

The state Deputy Governor, Alhaji Idi Gubana, gave the order on Sunday in Gashua when he visited areas affected by massive flooding in the area.

He directed the state Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to move residents of Usur and Gasma to the newly constructed housing estate in Jaji Maji.

The deputy governor said the visit was to sympathize with victims of the disaster and assess the level of damage for necessary support.

Gubana also directed SEMA to provide relief materials to the victims to cushion their suffering. (NAN)
