The Director General of the State Emergency Management Agency in Benue State, Emmanuel Chior said many of the IDPs lost crops due to River Benue and KatsinaAla bursting their banks.

Some of the Benue State farmers, are IDP’s who recently got intervention from Nigeria Emergency Management Agency.

However, officials of the two countries have given out building permits to individuals to erect structures on natural flood plains.

Previous governments have tried to demolish them but any government that wants to do it, will be forced to stop for political reason and the flooding has not only affected coastal communities but had ravaged markets and other parts of Makurdi.
