The Nasarawa State Emergency Management Agency has said no fewer than 361,000 persons have been displaced by flooding across the state.

Executive Secretary, NASEMA, Zachary Allumaga, told newsmen on Thursday in Lafia that there was possibility that the flood could displace one million people in the state before the end of the rainy season.

Allumaga said the state emergency agency had swung into action by dispatching search and rescue team and its officials to the affected local government areas and communities for an on-the-spot assessment.

He explained that Nasarawa state was among the states that the Nigerian Metrological Agency predicted this year particularly in the month of September and October to experience serious flood.
