Rainstorm destroys buildings in Edo



No fewer than 100 residential buildings in Okpella, Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo, were destroyed by a downpour which occurred on Monday, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

NAN reports that the first rain of the year, which began around 3pm and lasted for about four hours on Monday, also destroyed a school, electrical installations and farmlands.

A NAN correspondent, who visited the affected areas on Tuesday, reports that some residents were seen trying to salvage certain items from the ruins, while efforts were made to clear the debris of some damaged structures.



The classroom block of Iddo Community Grammar School was destroyed by the storm, forcing students to stay outdoors for their studies.

Some of the victims, who spoke to NAN, expressed shock over the incident, describing the rainstorm as the worst in the recent years.

They appealed to the state and local governments as well as well-meaning Nigerians to come to their aid.

One of the victims, Abdulahi Issah, described the development as the “will of God Almighty’’ which no person could have stopped.


He moaned that the entire roof of his house was blown off by the storm, which also brought down part of the fence.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
