Sad: Flood Sweeps Away 12-Year-Old Girl In Delta


A 12-year-old girl was swept away by flood after heavy rains on Thursday in Okpanam community area of Delta State.

One of the residents, Ogechukwu Okonkwor, who spoke to Guardian, noted that the flood was as a result of the NDDC contractor drainage system constructed poorly without proper channeling.
