To help set things back to how it used to be, he appealed to the state government and well meaning Nigerians to render assistance that can aid a quick restoration of the communities affected.

“The main roads connecting Fobur-Federe-Angware at Keven are badly washed away by the flood, including crops such as rice, yam among others.

“With the total collapse of roads, no heavy truck can pass through the area.

“And another issue is the Maza community road, which is disconnected and this has rendered the people helpless”, he said.
