The people at Darkuman Junction calls for help from the government because of flooding issues which worries them a lot at the place.
In an interview with some people at the place, D Fm reporters were told the flooding issues are caused by seasonal rainfall combined with poor drainage (the dumping of waste into water ways and the elevation of settlements).
Speaking with Hajia Kande who is a seller at Darkuman Junction said the flood is caused by chocked gutters, dumping of waste products and water released by mortuaries around the place which leaves them with high odour and also drives away their customers.
Some victims at the place also told the reporters the flood worries them a lot especially when it moves to the streets. They find it difficult to cross to the other side of the street when is a flood issue and also it causes traffic at the place due to the holes it has created there.
They are pleading with the government to solve their problems for them because they can’t wait for it to become a major flash point every year.
