Erosion threatens Delta community

27 October 2014, 10:07

Delta - Otulu community in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta, has called on the state government to rescue it from erosion which had devastated the area.

The Okwabanbi of the community, Paul Eboji, made the call in Otulu on Sunday.

Eboji said that the erosion had cut all the access roads to the community, adding that the challenge was adversely affecting socio-economic activities in the area.

"We are presently facing a huge problem from the erosion; we have been cut off from our neighboring communities.

"The link road from Ubulu-Okiti is in a terrible condition; the Otulu-Issele-Azagba road is being eaten up daily, and so also is the access road from the Lagos-Benin Expressway.

"Even here, you can't access many villages by vehicle; it is that bad.

“The three major access roads to our community are now death traps due to gully erosion.”

He added that if not checked, the erosion would completely ruin the community.

Eboji therefore appealed to the government to address the erosion problem in the community, expressing fear that it nothing was done before the next rainy season to avert further pains to residents.
