He said:

Although no life was lost, three people were injured and have been taken to hospital for treatment. Currently, some affected persons have found refuge in neighbours’ houses.

“The damages caused by the rainstorm further put the Miango people, who have over the years suffered violent attacks and displacement of persons, in a more precarious situation.

We call on the State Emergency Management Agency, the National Emergency Management Agency and the Local Government Council to come to assist the affected persons.

“We are also appealing to non-governmental organisations and well-meaning individuals to, as a matter of urgency, come to the aid of the affected persons as the rainy season intensifies.”
