Flood destroys worship centres, farmlands, houses in Kuje
Among worship centres affected was “Omega Fire Ministry” belonging to Apostle Johnson Suleiman, and White Garment Church.
The flood, which followed a heavy downpour that started on Sunday, Aug. 18, and ran into the early hours of Monday, Aug. 19, also affected a bridge linking unto Kuje-Gwagwalada road.
Our correspondent, who visited the area, found that the flood had taken over most of the roads, forcing residents to either remain indoors or move through the water to their destinations.
Some of the residents, who spoke with NAN, said that flooding was a recurring decimal in the community that was situated close to a riverine area.
Mr Zaka Tukura, whose house collapsed, told NAN that he was asleep when water submerged his house.
“I was asleep when the water submerged my house. I had to quickly move my children to a neighbour’s house.
