The three people who were not flood victims died instantly when an electric cable snapped from a pole and fell on them at the premise of the camp. Consequently, pandemonium rocked the camp and hundreds of the refugees ran to different directions for safety as most of them could not bear the sight of the deceased.

It was gathered that two of the dead were Urhobos while the third was identified as a native of Calabar but their names could not be ascertained as at press time.

Eyewitness described the situation as unfortunate the untimely death of the men who they said were just passers-by. “I have never seen this type of horrible thing in my life. I am still imagining how these hefty men who did not bargain with death will just die like that,” said an Ijaw refugee who pointed at the spot of the incident .

Investigation showed that some victims who were gripped with fear relocated from the camp that night as they were still shocked by the incident. Meanwhile, a middle-aged woman was bitten to death by a deadly snake at Gbekebor village in Burutu Local Government Area of the state.

According to The Daily sun the woman was sleeping in one of the rooms that was not flooded but unknown to her, a deadly snake which came with the flood crept into the room and bit her . It was further learnt that the woman later died and her corpse and that of the three men had been deposited at the Central Hospital Morgue. (Dailysun)

  1. Where is our faith.
    No Nigerian blood both at home and in diaspora would testify that he/she isnt aware of the sufferings those displaced by the flood are going through, this isnt by their making and it could be anyone in their shoes………..Where are our so called spiritual leaders, where are the soul called men of God who we contribute our offerings to on daily basis and they use to furnish their expensive and flamboyant life styles, buy new fleet of cars, service their chains of investments and even add new aircraft to their fleet, where are all these people these displaced citizens of Nigerians look up to as serving men of God and to whom they give offerings and tithes………………..Most of this displaced citizens are well respected citizens of the country who did their best in their environments and helped in the growth of the ministry in their environs where the so called leaders take the glory and because of the unfortunate incident
    that made them refugees in their own fathers land everyone is quiet on their predicament and all we read on the news on a daily basis is stories of harassment, molestations, death, starvation and what have you…………….the Government cant do this alone and that’s the simple truth that everyone knows…………….Where are those spiritual fathers who preach one thing and do the other because now is the time to practice what you preach not towards December period because crusade is near they come out to give cheap donation to catch the eyes of the masses i say to all you spiritual leaders now is time to test your faith as most of these displaced Nigerians have contributed willingly to the growth of your ministries not talking about any in particular but talking about every ministry to standup to the work of god and prove that they aint using us to do business but willing to do the will of God which is helping the needy in times of difficulties instead of lavishing the same money the masses contributed for the hand work of God in luxuries………………….i REST MY CASE

  2. that’s it why till today I will rather give my money to the orphanage and the less privileged than offering it to church in form of tithe or whatever form. God has a different ways of answering and acknowledging one prayers. Mercy!
