Three injured, 200 houses destroyed as rainstorm hit Plateau 

A fierce rainstorm wreaked havoc in the Miango District of Bassa Local Government in Plateau State, causing damage to over 200 houses and leaving three individuals injured. 

The publicity secretary of the Miango Youth Development Association, Nuhu Nga, confirmed the incident, stating that it occurred on Monday afternoon. 

Nga reported that the heavy rainstorm knocked down several valuable trees and stranded numerous individuals, causing damage to various structures such as homes, a clinic, schools, shops, and animal pens.  

He further mentioned that essential items like documents, household goods, cement, and various other belongings were ruined by the relentless rainstorm. 

The statement read, “Although no life was lost, three people were injured and have been taken to the hospital for treatment. 

“Currently, some affected persons have found refuge in neighbors’ houses. 

“The damages caused by the rainstorm further put the Miango people, who have over the years suffered violent attacks and displacement of persons, in a more precarious situation. 

“We call on the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), and the Local Government Council to come to assist the affected persons. 

“We are also appealing to non-governmental organizations and well-meaning individuals to, as a matter of urgency, come to the aid of the affected persons as the rainy season intensifies,” he said.
