Nigeria: 100 KIlled In Ibadan Flooding

At least 100 people have died after heavy rains caused flooding in Ibadan on Friday.

An official for the National Emergency Management agency, Tunde Adebiyi, said Monday that most of the victims are children who drowned in the southwestern city of Ibadan. He said people in the city were left with no escape routes after torrential rains on Friday damaged three bridges and made a dam overflow, submerging entire neighborhoods.

The water was gradually receding, but major challenges remained, he said.

Reports say people have to go long distances to go from one place to the other because of the collapsed bridges.

He said that the agency was delivering food, toiletries and medical supplies to thousands of people displaced by floods.
