The incident, which occurred on Saturday evening after a heavy downpour, disrupted electricity supply, leaving residents helpless and in total darkness.
Hitvibz gathered from an eye witness, that about 36 electricity poles were destroyed by the rainstorm thereby constituting serious threat to lives and property in the community.
Meanwhile, the paramount ruler of the community, Eze (Evang.) Obum Akawor, is appealing to Local, state government and the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, [PHCN] to take urgent steps to immediately replace the fallen poles and the destroyed cables littering the streets for safety purposes.
“Its painful to see unfortunate incidents like this happen, especially during this hard time of covid-19 and total lockdown. On behalf of my people, I’m appealing to the Local, state government and PHCN to come to our aid,” Eze (Evang.) Obum said.
