Aboh kingdom seeks govt attention for flood victims

BY JIMITOTA ONOYUME

The people of Aboh in Delta have sent an urgent appeal to the Delta State government to come to the aid of victims of the flood disaster that recently ravaged the area.

A statement issued yesterday in Port Harcourt at the end of the Port Harcourt branch of Aboh Development Union meeting and signed by the president, Chief Felix Alumona, Chief Ifeanyi Ossai and Steve Olisah, said those displaced by the flood were in desperate need of government attention.

According to them, the victims were robbed recently of their valuables at Utagba Ogbe Technical College where they relocated to, as a result of the flood problem.

They said, the robbery was possible because no security arrangement was allegedly in place to protect them.

They enjoined the government to urgently come to the aid of victims of the flood disaster in the area.

“In our monthly meeting held on Sunday, October 7, 2012, the Port Harcourt Branch of Aboh Development Union (Ndokwa East Lga of Delta State) observed… the plight of the people of Aboh ancient town, in respect of the devastation of the communities by flood.  “
