Flood digs 500 bodies from graves in Borno

Over 500 dead bodies were washed up from their graves in Jajeri Moslem Cemetery in Maiduguri and Jere Council Area Borno state capital following a heavy downpour that started from Wednesday evening till the early hours of Thursday. A 10-year-old, who was buried two days ago, was also washed up.

Also, over 10,000 residents, were sacked from their homes while property worth millions of naira were  destroyed.

The rainfall was said to be the heaviest in the state since the commencement of the rainy season.

Areas which were affected are: Bullumkutu, Ajillari, Jajeri, London Ciki, Polo, Bolori, Ummarari, Maduganari, Gomari Airport, Gwange and Mary wards of the metropolis. Most of the residents in these areas had to stay indoors. Others were seen evacuating their property and laying the items under the sun and on trees to dry.

Mallam Bukar Maina, a resident, said the affected people have planned to send an SOS to Governor Shettima to come to their aid.

Maina said: “This is not the first time we have taken our complaint to the governor on the devastating effect of flooding in the area due to our proximity to River Gadambul. But all our cries fell on deaf ears. We hope this time around the governor will listen to us.”

Meanwhile, Borno State Governor, Shettima has said the state government has awarded contracts worth N14 billion for the construction of roads and drainages in Bullumkutu, Dala, Abuja Talaka, Bullumkutu Tsalake, among other wards of the metropolis, to check flooding.

He said there was ongoing planting of over 10 million Arabic trees/seedlings across the 27 council areas of the state.
He said: “It is unfortunate that apart from some of my valuable documents and property which were destroyed, some section of my only hard-earned two bedroom bungalow was brought down by the flood. I am now totally confused as I have nowhere to go to with my family of 10.”
