    Nawoo.. May his soul rest in peace

  2. I advise that people should remain indoors anytime it rains.
    if the road is flooded, you will hardly know where the gutter and potholes are especially if you are new in that area

  3. When rain is falling you stay indoors until the ways are clear for you to know where the drainage systems exist.

    infact don’t walk on flooded areas if u are not familiar with the enviroment and again use long pole or stick to identify shallow places before steping ur foot.

  4. Death a respecta of nobody!
    It immediately changes your face and turns you to a pitiful matter.
    Rest in peace

    This is very strange… I kept on wondering if Imo state is a state of rain or what. Yesterday was terrible, through out yesterday it was raining everywhere flooded. I don’t even no how people will cope in such environment. May his soul rest in peace..We should be careful and alert at all time
