The superstar singer who hails from Benue state has pledged his support to the affected victims of the flood disaster.
Nigerian music icon, Innocent Idibia popularly known as Tuface, on Tuesday said he would organise a concert to raise funds for the flood victims in Benue State.
Tuface and wife Annie visited the camp to donate gifts to victims and told the News Agency of Nigeria in Makudi, the state capital, that the concert would be organised in the city in December.
“I really wish that I could do more for the victims. I have a concert scheduled to hold in Jos for the victims of the Boko Haram insurgency, but we will try to organise one around December to raise funds for the flood victims in Benue.
“The people I saw at the camp are hard working Nigerians, who, due to no fault of theirs, have found themselves without shelter, food and other basic items.
“Their situation is like that of the victims of the Boko Haram insurgency, in which innocent citizens have been killed and many were left to suffer.
“As you can see, this can happen to anybody and none of the victims planned for it. So, we really need to assist them.
“I would like to use this opportunity to call on my colleagues in the music industry to come to the aid of the flood victims in Benue State.”
Tuface appealed to the federal and Benue State governments to provide drains in flood prone areas of the state to avoid future occurrence. He also pledged support for the flood victims.
