There are about 110,000 families in the IDP camp who have taken shelter there after the heavy rainfall two weeks ago. The torrential downpour created a huge flood and destroyed a lot of properties.

2baba, as he is fondly called, is also scheduled to perform under the Benue Flood Relief Initiative.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Health, Isaac Adewole, has called on development partners for more support to assist Benue State flood victims. Some communities in Benue State were last week ravaged by floods which washed away villages, farmlands, food storage facilities and left many people displaced.

Mr. Adewole who has been monitoring and coordinating the health ministry’s intervention noted that thousands of people have already registered at the emergency medical camp opened at the international market in Makurdi and the “number is increasing on an hourly basis as more residents are reporting for medical checks.”
