The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has alerted the state governments and communities along River Benue of possible flood following information from Cameroonian authorities to release excess water from Lagdo Dam.

Director General Muhammad Sani Sidi said that the Cameroonian authorities in Garuoa have indicated that between now and November 2015 there would be routine release of water from the Lagdo Dam due to excessive amount of water presently contained in the dam.

Sani Sidi, in a statement issued this today in Abuja by NEMA Information Officer Sani Datti, said that the authorities have also warned “all those living around the dam and along River Benue in Garoua up to Nigeria side should be alert and be ready for evacuation in case of possible flooding.”

He called on the frontline state governors, State Emergency Management Agencies, first respondents and relevant authorities to alert the communities at risk, prepare safe locations for possible evacuation and adequate preparedness.

The DG NEMA said the agency has dispatched the alert to the effected state governors and is following up with appropriate advocacy.

It would be recalled that the release of excess water from the dam in 2012 contributed to massive flooding of communities along the river. Consequently, in 2013, the two countries reached an agreement that Cameroun was to give early warning to enable Nigeria put in place proactive measure to prevent destruction of lives and properties.
