The Agwon Izere, the Paramount traditional ruler of Jos East in Plateau state, Isaac Wakili, has raised an alarm that students in his domain no longer attend school because of heavy flooding.

Already, the two weeks of incessant rains have washed the only bridge linking Jos East Local Government Area from the rest of Plateau State, and is calling for an urgent intervention by the authority.

Officials also hinted that the rains have also disrupted farming, commerce and other activities, and “students have not been able to attend schools for more than a week”.

“People can no longer come to Jos through the Federe Angware road due to the washing away of the bridge,”  Wakili said, adding that “Students across Federe and Agwari always have difficulties in attending schools any day it rains and it has been raining almost on a daily basis in the past two weeks.

“Our farm produce were also washed away by the rains. We appeal to government to immediately come to our rescue to help fix the damaged bridge,” the traditional stated.

Confirming this, the state House of Assembly member representing the constituency, Joshua Madaki, said he had on June 6 alerted the House of the imminent disaster to economic trees submerged in the area.
