“We were all crying for help but no one came. He went to buy some food for his aged mother before he died while trying to cross over.
“If the drainage had been well done, the man would not have died. We have been abandoned with no good roads. We make payments but we do not get power supply,” said Isoken, according to Olisa.tv.
