The Plateau State Emergency Agency (SEMA) says it has received expert reports suggesting some parts of the State are soon to witness heavy flooding before the rainy season runs out.

Reliable information according to the agency indicates plans by the Cameroonian Government to release excess water from its Lagdo Dam.

Rivers Niger and Benue in Nigeria would consequently be over-flooded, thus causing flooding similar to that recorded in 2012, an official statement by Mrs. Roselyn Dakwar, the agency's Director of Administration says.

According to the statement, the large volume of water hitting the two main rivers in Nigeria is likely to cause an overflow of other rivers that extend to other parts of the country, resulting in heavy losses.

"Since the rivers also pass through some communities in plateau state, citizens living around flood prone areas of the state are advised to relocate and be watchful to safeguard lives and property," the statement warns.

The statement calls on relevant authorities including emergency management partners and the 17 Local Government councils of the state to 'activate' prevention, mitigation, preparedness, and response mechanisms to compliment efforts already put in place by SEMA.

The agency equally calls citizens to religiously clear drainages within their vicinities to allow free flow of water.
