This woman, her husband and two children have been left with no choice but to abandon their home after heavy flooding affected the foundation of her house.
The woman recently appeared in a viral video begging the state governor, Emeka Ihedioha, to come to her rescue. By then some parts of the fence of the house, including the gates were still standing. Today, the gate of the house has collapsed with the entire frontal fence, with more of the foundation of the house now exposed. She had to be forced into the street with her family.
She could no longer take the risk of staying in the house as people urged her to pack out due to the fear that the building could collapse in the middle of the night.
Her husband is living with disability and is also helpless.
The woman has cried for days but help has not arrived yet.
The house is located along Standard shoe/works/Mbieri road, Owerri Imo State.
State government officials have visited the area and taken note of the destruction. But the woman and her kids are still in trouble.
The erosion was caused by road construction done by the administration of Rochas Okorocha. During that administration, several existing gutters and drainage structures were removed and replaced with poorly constructed ones which collapsed under heavy flooding.
Unfortunately for the woman and her family, help did not arrived and they are being forced into the street by erosion and heavy flooding.
