Flood Forces Assembly Members to Vacate Their Houses, Cut off Highways in Kogi

The ravaging flood in Kogi State has stretched its hold to the Kogi State Assembly quarters as it forces assembly members to vacate their houses.

A report by PUNCH shows that the flood also cut off many highways in the state, thus hindering movements in the affected part of the state to some other parts.

The Assembly quarters, located along Ganaja village, had been housing the 26 state lawmakers since 2003 until now, when the flood forced them out of their homes.

PUNCH also reported that no members of the assembly had responded to efforts by newsmen to reach them either on phone calls of text sms.

The media outlet also reported that as at Sunday, it was impossible to access the Ganaja village without the aid of canoe or boat to cross the flooded area.

This has forced the commuters to use another route to Lokoja and beyond.

Nigeria News World also gathered that the flood has caused enough damages to the assembly quarter making it impossible for no less than 8 members to live in the quarters anymore.

Also, it was impossible to get to any of the flooded parts of the quarters as the flood took over every part.
