A cross-section of the residents who made the call in an interview with Kanem Trust said that most gutters in the metropolis were already filled with refuse.   

Like many residents, Malam Mohammed Hassan said densely-populated areas like Gamboru, Umararai, Zajiri used to experience serious flooding every rainy season but construction of drainages and evacuation of the existing ones would reduce the effects of the problem.   

He appealed to the authorities saddled with the responsibility of evacuation to educate people on the danger associated with dumping garbage in gutters as the act will render government objectives towards preventing flood useless.   

According to the resident, government should speed up action before the rain sets in full to save the lives and properties of the people from flood disaster.
