Anguwan Tana community in Yola North LGA, of Adamawa state has been hit with flood as a result of an overflow from River Kilange and River Faro.
The farming settlement in the state capital lies on the shore of the River Benue, which runs across Yola.
Residents of the community lamented the destruction of their farms following the heavy flood.
Visiting the affected area on Friday, the Executive Secretary of the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency, ADSEMA, Dr Mohammed Suleiman, said the agony of the people would have been averted if they had heeded warnings about possible flooding.
“Before the inception of the rainy season, when we received the prediction of flooding, we had warned them,” the ADSEMA boss told newsmen.
While stressing the need for them to always cooperate with government, he assured them of food and non-food relief items.
