Lokoja — The state's Commissioner of Environment, Abdurahaman Wuya has said that some residents who were not affected by the flood have been discovered at the relief camp at Saint Luke Primary School, Adakolo in Lokoja. The commissioner stated this while speaking with our correspondent yesterday in Lokoja.
"As soon as we opened the camp, many people trooped in without their property claiming to be victims of flood. But as soon we opened a book to register them and their property, some of them ran away," he said.
He said most of them came to the camp thinking that government would give money to the victims, warning that government would deal with any intruder who attempts to undermine the efforts of the government.
According to him, government has provided relief materials including drugs for the victims. One the victims at the camp, Anthony Icha, commended the government for the gesture, calling on them to compensate them as most of their property has been destroyed.
