SOME residents of Udaba, Anegbette and Oghomere communities in Etsako Central Local Government Area of Edo State are currently counting their losses, as no fewer than 40 houses in the communities have been submerged by flood.

It was learnt the flood, which occurred on Friday as a result of the overflowing River Niger, also destroyed property worth millions of naira.

Southern City News gathered that some of the affected residents had started relocating to nearby communities around Fugar and Auchi in Etsako Central and West local government areas, respectively.

A source in one of the affected communities said many of the villagers harvested their crops prematurely, fearing the incessant rainfalls could damage their crops.

The village head of Udaba, Chief David Inetakpe, said most victims had no temporary place of shelter as the resettlement camp being constructed by the Federal Government had yet to be completed.

“Even most painful is that we have not heard from the government since this problem started on Friday. We need help and there is no point pretending about it. We need government to come to our aid,” Inetakpe said.

Efforts made by Southern City News to reach the State Emergency Management Authority to speak on the matter were unsuccessful.

There had been calls for rural residents in coastal areas to relocate to highlands.
