This is coming a year after an Anambra Pastor’s daughter was reportedly killed by a flood, which followed a downpour in the area which lasted for over six hours on Wednesday.
The Anambra Pastor’s daughter who died in the incident which occurred in Awka South Local Government Area of the state, had complained of feeling feverish. It was gathered that the 14-year-old girl’s father hired a driver to take her to
hospital, however at a spot where flood had accumulated, the water swept the bus containing four persons into a swamp.
A source said:
“On reaching the flood spot, the driver declined to move on, but the elder brother to the deceased said he could drive pass the spot.
“When he took over the vehicle the raging flood swept off the bus into Obibia swamp with four occupants including the girl. The incident happened behind the Governor’s Lodge in Amawbia.”
