A resident of the area, Ibrahim Mohammed said three children were lost in the flood.

He said;

A man whose house was submerged made frantic efforts to save his children with the help of sympathetic neighbours.

While also submerged by the water, he lifted up one of the children to his neighbours who helped him to carry the child to safety.

But the attempt to ferry the second child to safety turned tragic as the child mistakenly fell into the water and was washed away.

So far, three children have been declared dead and properties worth millions of Naira destroyed.
