Three children died of drowning while two others are still missing in a devastating flood following three days of downpour that wrecked havoc at Okpoko in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The flood also damaged atleast 10 buildings in the area and properties worth over N100 million were lost.
A resident of the area, Mr. Christian Aguchi said yesterday that the two missing kids had not been seen by their parents as their homes were also among the buildings that were swept away by the flood, Vanguard reports.
“The three children drowned in the flood when it flowed into their residences. As we speak, two other children have not been seen by their parents. Even now that the rain has subsided, there are still floods flowing on some streets and one wonders where they are coming from.” Mr Aguchi said.
