The Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has deployed officers in its Disaster Management Department in all the communities affected by recent flood in Kogi, Niger, Delta and Anambra States and other parts of Nigeria.
They are to assist victims of the flood in the affected communities.
This was contained in a press statement signed on Tuesday by the Media Assistant to the Commandant-General, Ekunola Gbenga.
He said that a team of trained and experienced disaster case managers were on the ground in the states in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and other agencies in helping those impacted by the devastating floods in the states.
Gana said: “I have tasked senior disaster managers to travel across the affected states to focus on impacted communities; we are getting bad floods in those states, therefore, need to have disasters officers in these areas in case disaster strikes.”
The CJ said that the corps is also setting up disaster risk reduction centres in all the states.
