Military to airlift trapped flood victims in Anambra


The National Emergency Management Agency and the Disaster Response Unit of the military has commenced aerial view of the flooded communities in Anambra.

The exercise is to ascertain persons who are still trapped by the rising flood with a view to airlifting them out of the affected communities.

The Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, South-East, Thickman Tanimu, made this known in Awka on Monday.

Tanimu disclosed that the Presidency and the Director-General of NEMA, Mustapha Ahmed-Habib, commiserated with the state government and flood victims including the bereaved.

He said relief materials had been approved for the flood victims, adding that the relief materials would be presented directly to them on Tuesday.

He also pointed out that the delay in the arrival of relief materials is due to the flood disaster that cut off Abuja – Lokoja road and the security situation due to the Monday sit-at-home in the South East.
