The situation has forced local government officials including the council chairman to operate from home while the police have resorted to using trees as a temporary shelter.

The executive secretary of state emergency Management Agency, SEMA Alhaji Yusuf Sani Babura said the agency is currently assessing the level of damage caused by the flood for intervention across the state.
