<p class=""><strong>Inga </strong>disclosed this when he appeared before the Niger State House of Assembly to brief it on the agency’s activities in 2019.</p>

<h1>Mr Ibrahim Inga, the Director General, Niger State Emergency Management Agency (NSEMA), on Wednesday said the 2019 floods destroyed 2,714 houses and claimed 10 lives in the state.</h1>

<p class=""><strong>Inga </strong>disclosed this when he appeared before the Niger State House of Assembly to brief it on the agency’s activities in 2019.</p>

<p class="">He said that a total of 21, 223 people were affected by the disaster in 20 local government areas with 123 communities submerged.</p>

<p class="">“<em>The floods, which began in August as a result of a localised high intensity rainfall accompanied by torrential winds, triggered massive run off activities in streams and rivers.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“These violent river behaviours resulted in loss of 10 lives with some roads, bridges, culverts and residential buildings badly affected by the force of the water. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>“These excess waters have inundated several hectares of farmlands and displaced some dwellers in hinterland communities,”</em> he added.</p>

<p class="">He said the agency could not sufficiently respond to the disaster as it had exhausted its N200m capital budget for 2019 before the flooding season.</p>

<p class=""><em>“The agency may not have responded with relief interventions due to the reasons mentioned but had acted within the conduct of the above assessment exercise.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“In view of the above therefore, the agency has requested for an emergency supplementary budget wallet,</em>” he said.</p>

<p class="">According to him, in addition to its assessment exercise, the agency has forwarded request for assistance in favour of the victims from donor partners.</p>
