Abuja - A rainstorm has wreaked havoc in Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, causing widespread flooding and destroying crops and properties in the process.
According to Naij, houses, vehicles and roads were submerged as a result of the downpour on Saturday.
Many residents, particularly those living near water channels, lost their properties and were forced to evacuate as nature took its course.
