A devastating flood has swept through Delta State, displacing five communities within the Warri North Local Government Area. These affected communities are Torukubuagbene, Awanba, Koropigbene, Itagbene, Asigborodo, and neighboring areas.
Mr. Kenren Pere, the Councillor representing Ogbinbiri ward 18 in Asigborodo Community, revealed this to the press on Monday in Warri. He reported that this calamity began over a week ago and escalated on Friday.
Urgently appealing for state government intervention, Pere emphasized the critical peril faced by his community members.
He said, “I cannot attribute the course to flooding or the heavy torrential downpour that has been happening in recent time, though, rain has been falling before, but we have not had it so bad like this.
“Many valuables including local boats, clothes, food items, and other means of livelihood have been destroyed by the unfortunate occurrence.
“Lives are at stake, people can no longer go about their normal daily activities to feed, so there is hunger in the affected communities.
“The overflow started more than a week ago, but the situation became worse three days ago, leaving my people in fear,” he said.
