3500 Houses Submerged 25 Killed in Bauchi Flood

Published

on

Not less than 25 people have been killed while 3500 houses have been submerged in the flooding incidents across Bauchi state in 2020.

The Deputy Governor Baba Tela revealed this while receiving officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) at the government house on behalf of Governor Bala Mohammed.

He said;

“Areas that have not seen water or flood for the last five years or so are now impassable with a lot of water there.

“We have over 3,500 houses and over 2,200 farmlands destroyed. And you know in this part of the country, we depend on farming. So when you have over 2,000 farms destroyed, that will give you an indication of what is to come – lack of food as time goes on.

“The issue of flooding has been a reoccurring decimal not only in the state but across the country. In Bauchi State, about 15 local government areas have been affected by flooding, which is because of the unusual rainfall earlier predicted by NEMA.

“We have also lost about 25 lives and that is quite substantial; it is okay to lose something you can replace, but you can’t replace lives. We also have those who were injured, about 20 people.

“On the money lost as well as the farmlands and houses that have been destroyed this year, it’s almost N950 million, which does not include the infrastructure that the government has to replace as some roads have been washed away.”

Tela who thanked NEMA for providing relief materials for the state, also asked for federal government’s intervention.

He added;

“I will like to mention that through NEMA, we have received various types of food items, totalling 220 trailers as relief materials.”

The autopsy Conducted on September 20, 2021, by Police consultant Pathologist, Dr. W.O Akhiwu, attributed the cause of her death to Hemorrhagic Shock, Ruptured Tubal Ectopic and Massive Hemoperitoneum Conditions.

According to medical experts, Hemorrhagic shock is a condition of reduced tissue perfusion, resulting in the inadequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients that are necessary for cellular function.

Therefore, whenever cellular oxygen demand outweighs supply, both the cell and the organism are in a state of shock.

An ectopic pregnancy can cause Fallopian tubes in women to burst or rupture. Emergency symptoms are believed to include major pain, with or without severe bleeding.

So, in Hemoperitoneum Conditions, blood is expected to accumulate in peritoneal cavity, a small area of space located between internal abdominal organs and inner abdominal wall.

26-year-Old Deceased Victim, Faith Osamudiamen Aigbe, a resident of
Aigbe Street Evbuomoma Quarters, Benin City, was accused by his suspected Boyfriend, and Enogie designate, Ogierhiakhi Friday to have been nine months pregnant for him until she gave up after allegedly undergoing abortion in undisclosed hospital without his consent.
