My people have no food, no water to drink, no shelter and no amenities whatsoever— a Nigerian lawmaker

Quarter of the country’s population, or more than 40 million people, have been displaced by flooding in Niger Delta, which began in June, the Nigerian President has said.

  • The flooding has claimed hundreds of lives, left tens of thousands injured and  destroyed homes, farmlands and much of the country’s infrastructure.
  • The Nigerian government is calling the catastrophe an “act of God.” However, local environmentalists say it is  “a man-made disaster.”
  • “The floods are primarily a result of very poor management of the dams in both Nigeria and Cameroon,” they said.

U.N. OCHA has released the following stats

Between July and the end of October, 7,705,378 people have been affected by the floods and 2,157,419 have registered as IDPs at some moment; 363 people are reported dead, more than 618,000 houses have been damaged or destroyed; 33 States out of 36 are affected.
