One person has been swept away in a flood that wreaked havoc in Nguroje community in Sardauna local government council of Taraba State, authorities have confirmed.

Apart from the victim who was killed in the flood, another person was reported missing with several houses destroyed.

Some persons from the affected community who spoke with DAILY POST via telephone said the rain lasted many hours and not only rendered many homeless but washed away several hectares of farmlands.

Pained by the disaster, the member representing the area in the state House of Assembly, Nelson Lens, described the incident as unfortunate.”

The member who noted that this is the first of its kind in the area, said the construction of waterways in the community will go a long way to avert future occurrences.
