Benue Floods displace over 100,000 people in Benue. Reason for such huge upsurge revealed here: flood experts!!!

More than 100,000 people have had to flee their homes after heavy rains and flooding in Nigeria’s southeastern Benue state, President Muhammadu Buhari said late Thursday.

“I have received with great concern reports of the flooding in Benue State, displacing, from early estimates, more than 100,000 people,” Buhari wrote on Twitter.

Many residents in the state capital Makurdi have fled their homes since Wednesday.

Helen Teghtegh, the head of a local NGO, the Community Links and Human Empowerment Initiative, said the region had been battered by heavy rain.
