 He said that many houses were destroyed by floods which led to the displacement of households.

 

“Each of the flood victims is to collect N50, 000 with a bag of rice and clothing materials and a mat,” he said.

 

He, therefore, warned the affected residents against building houses on waterways and flood plains.

 

He noted that this is to avoid future occurrences of destroying people’s lives and property.

 

The Governor also supervised the disbursement of N5, 000 each to 30, 000 widows and other vulnerable women from various insurgency-affected communities.

 

Chairman of Damboa Council, Prof. Adamu Alloma thanked the Governor for the support and intervention in bringing succour to the people.
