The federal government has promised to manage the release of water from Lagdo dam in Cameroon.
This is as it says the flood caused by the dam would be less severe than that of 2022, which was the worst flooding the country experienced in the last decade.
The Minister of State for Environment, Ishaq Salako, who gave the assurance, spoke on a day the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, asked Nigerians not to panic, assuring that everything was under control.
Recall that the Cameroonian government had last weekend, written NEMA informing it of plans to release water from the dam
He says the ministry had also been warning and alerting people residing close to the River Benue banks, and appealing that they move to higher grounds.
