The Kogi Emergency Management Agency is complaining over the difficulty it is facing in trying to identify genuine victims of the flood disasters which affected many homes and communities in the state.
The secretary of the Agency, Alice Ogedengbe, said m,any people who are not victims of the flood have stormed the agency in a bid to claim relief materials provided by the government meant to alleviate the suffering of the victims.
She said the imposters who were denied the materials are the ones crying fowl saying the agency is not alive to its duties.
Ogedengbe advised people who were not affected by floods to be law-abiding, and work with the government to ensure adequate distribution of relief materials to victims.
“I can assure you that the state government will do everything possible to bring perpetrators to book,’’ she said.
Meanwhile, reports say the Inter-ministerial Committee on Environment has released N250m in fulfilment of President Goodluck Jonathan’s pledge to assist flood victims in Kebbi State.
