Flood has taken over some parts of Jakusko town, the headquarters of Jakusko local government area of Yobe State, following a heavy downpour.

Yesterday’s heavy rainfall in the town also destroyed many houses, property as well as other valuables, sacking many families with some of them still counting their losses.

The Yobe Emergency Management Agency, (SEMA), who spoke to journalists following the flood incident informed that Governors Mai Mala Buni has directed the agency to carry out an assessment and respond to the plights of affected victims.

“On a very sad note, Jakusko town the headquarters of Jakusko LGA was yesterday affected by the flood as a result of a heavy downpour on 21st July 2021.
