Usur and Gasma communities in Bade and Karasuwa local government areas in Yobe State have been ordered to relocate over massive flooding threatening the areas.
The Yobe State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Idi Gubana, directed the state Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to move the residents of the two communities to the newly constructed housing estate in Jaji Maji.
Gubana gave the order on Sunday when he visited areas affected by massive flooding.
He also directed SEMA to provide relief materials to the victims to cushion their suffering.
He explained that the visit was to sympathize with flood victims and assess the level of damage for necessary support.
The Speaker of the Yobe State House of Assembly, Alhaji Ahmad Mirwa and the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Baba Wali, accompanied the deputy governor.
The Emir of Bade, Alhaji Abubakar Suleiman, who thanked Gubana for the sympathy visit, urged the citizenry to pray for the return of normalcy in the affected areas.
