NEMA advises four Imo communities to relocate
National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has issued a notice to four communities in Imo State to relocate to safer sites over a possible flooding, which it said might occur any moment from now.
The four communities are Eziorsu, Afiaofu, Orsuobodo and Ossemotto, all in Ohaji/Egbema and Oguta Council.
The Head of Imo/Abia Operation Office of NEMA, Mr. Evan Ugoh, issued the notice yesterday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Ugoh said that the flood might also affect communities within the Orashi bank of River Niger.
Over 60 houses and farmlands were submerged in some communities in two councils recently by flood, with no fewer than 2,000 people displaced.
