Six Anambra Family Members Drown In Flood




Six members of a family in Anambra state are the latest victims of the country’s flood disaster.

The family members — a mother, her four children, and her sister — drowned on Tuesday after their home in Nzam, Anambra West Local Government Area, was submerged.

According to a trending video, youths of the community were seen bringing out corpses from a house and depositing them in an upland area.

From the video, the bodies consisted of a woman, her four children and a sister.

According to the narrator in the video, the family members were already prepared to leave for a safe place, before their residence was submerged by flood.

Recall that about 81 people lost their lives in two boat accidents in Ogbaru Local Government council of the state last week.

Also a man who had successfully evacuated his family from the flood and opted to stay back to take care of the vicinity recently drowned in Ogbaru while he was asleep.

The National Emergency Management Agency, in a press conference, had said it had commenced aerial surveillance, using helicopters, to rescue trapped residents of the flooded areas.

This flood disaster is considered as the latest among numerous floods that have happened in Nigeria this year.
