3 people have been killed and 1 person declared missing after torrential rains caused flooding in Nasarawa.

Three people have reportedly been killed and at least one person declared missing after torrential rainfall caused floods in Lafia Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

According to Daily Post, about 150 houses were also buried in the devastation as many homes were inundated by floods on Monday.

It was gathered that the affected communities include Adage, Yalwata, Akura, Uga and Gidan Buba. The flood completely wiped out Gidan Buba Uga, the major bridge in the area.

Speaking with the press, the Sole Administrator of Lafia LG, Suleiman Wambai, said that the disaster was caused by blocked waterways; mostly caused by the dumping of refuse in drainages. But the community leader of Gidan Buba, Abdulhamid Usman blamed the floods on the heavy downpour which reportedly lasted for hours.

Buba confirmed the deaths, the destruction of properties worth millions, and added that the missing person is from Dakaci village.

It is unclear if the State Government had sent relief to the areas as at press time.
