One person died yesterday as a result of flooding at Udei in Guma local government area of Benue State. 

The flood in the state has wrecked havoc amidst repeated appeal by the state government to the people in flood-prone areas to immediately vacate their abode to avoid any impending danger following Metrological Agency’s prediction.

The Executive Secretary of Benue State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Mr. Boniface Ortese confirmed yesterday in Makurdi that one person died as a result of flood in Udei early hours of the day.

Ortese who was on his way to the location to ascertain the extent of damage caused by the flood, further appealed to Benue residents living or farming along the coastline to move to higher grounds without delay, warning that the impending flood might be worse than the 2012 flood experienced in the country.
