Young Slay Queen Poses in Front of Her Flooded House as Rainstorm Submerge Parts of Benue (Photos)

Over 15,000 people have been chased from their homes

by an early morning rainstorm, Monday, and a resultant flood that submerged over 2,000 houses in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, and its environs.

The flood, said to be the worst after that of 2012 when River Benue broke its banks, also swept away hundreds of millions of Naira worth of properties and valuables in a downpour that lasted over four hours.

The hardest hit areas are Achuasa Media Village, Wadata Rice Mill,Behind Police Zone Four, Larozone Nyiman Quarters, Judges Quarters, Gboko Road, Logo, New Bank Road, Abu, Shuluwa Road and the neighbourhood of Radio Benue, where all the houses in the community, including the transmitter of the state-owned radio station, were submerged.

This young lady posted the photos on Facebook and wrote:
