Cameroon Opens Dam, Taraba State, Nigeria, Floods

Over 300 buildings have been submerged in a flood that ravaged several communities in Jalingo, the Taraba State Capital of Nigeria.

According to residents, the flooding commenced on Saturday morning, in the wake of a heavy downpour. They also pointed fingers at the release of water from Labdo dam in Cameroon.

No life has been reported lost but residents watched helplessly as business centers, vehicles, worship centers, and schools were submerged by the flood.

Red Cross officials have arrived in the flooded areas to provide emergency help for affected residents.

Some residents also called for the government to assist in rebuilding their homes and provide relief materials to cushion the pain of their losses.
