Erosion Swallows 2-storey Building In Abia Community
The people of Amaewu, Umueze, Amamba Uzuakoli in Bende local government of Abia State now live in panic following a gully erosion site which has defied all solutions after several millions of Naira was expended in tackling it.
Speaking with ABN TV Friday, the member representing Bende South constituency in Abia State House of Assembly, Hon. Emmanuel Chinedu Ndubuisi said an indigene of the community living overseas has lost his 2-storey building to the erosion despite making frantic efforts to bring it under control.
While stating that more buildings in the community are under the threat of the erosion, Hon. Ndubuisi hinted that the community has commenced a fresh palliative work following an advise by NEWMAP team to mitigate the flood impact.
On interventions from lawmakers representing the people at the National Assembly, Hon. Ndubuisi said members representing Bende Federal Constituency, Rep. Benjamin Kalu, and the Senator representing Abia North, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu are aware of the challenges of the people.
