Thousands of persons trapped by flood disaster at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) Camps in Ogwuanaocha, Akili Ogidi, Obeagwe and Ogwuikpele, all in Ogbaru council areas of Anambra state are languishing at Ogbaru camps, seeking federal government’s immediate intervention.
This was disclosed to New Telegraph correspondent when members of Human Rights Defenders of Nigeria led by Dede Uzor visited the IDPs’camps in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra state at the weekend.
Speaking while handing over some relief materials brought by the group to the Ogbaru flood committee, Uzor stressed the need for society and men of goodwill to come to the rescue of the ravaged community of displaced persons.
The rights activist, who spoke on their desire to provide succour to the displaced persons, urged the Ogbaru flood committee to extend items to the camps in Ogbaru Council Area of Anambra State.
