The dire situation has made it impossible for officials of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) to access the affected communities.

Alhaji Abdullah Hindu, Northern Regional NADMO Coordinator in a Citi News interview described the situation as unprecedented.

According to him, also in Kumbungu, Daboya-Mankarigu and other districts, hundreds of people have been affected by floods.
