He was said to have been overwhelmed by the high current of the flood which pushed him into the deep drainage channel.

 

 

 

Efforts by the community search party to locate the remains proved futile as half of the community has been submerged.

The mother of the deceased known in the area as Mama Caro, in tears, said the tragic incident happened at about 11a.m. on Monday while she went to market to get ingredients for preparing lunch.

 

 

 

“When I came back from the market, I was told he had gone swimming with friends.

“I thought he was swimming in the rising water at the compound until one of his friends told me that he had been dragged by the flood into the canal.” she said

 

 

 

According to the bereaved, the family hails from Amabulu in Ojobo community of Ekeremor Local Government Area of the state.

Meanwhile, residents of communities impacted by the floods in Bayelsa have appealed to government to find a lasting solution to the annual menace.

 

 

 

Some of them who lamented the hardship occasioned by the situation, appealed for temporary shelters and relief materials as the flood had already sacked them from their residences.

A victim, Mrs. Perez Ayebanua, said their houses were flooded late last month and the menace was already taking a toll on them with reptiles competing with them for space.

 

 

 

Madam Florence Job and Mrs Ebi Perekeme explained that while those with resources had left their homes for hotels or elsewhere, the indigent ones got stuck and were left behind.

The residents said they were at a loss over the situation, calling on the Bayelsa and Federal Governments to come to their aid and cushion the pains caused by the flood.

 

 

 

Areas such as Biseni, Tombia-Ekpetiama, Tombia-Amassoma Road, Akenfa, Akenpai, Igbogene and Swali all in Yenagoa LGA as well as Kaiama, Odi, Otuoke, Ogbia communities are already flooded.

Others include Tungbo, Agbere, Odoni, Bulu-Orua, Agoro and Sagbama.

 

 

According to reports, its tributaries that receive waters from River Niger and the Epie Creek have all overflown their banks, discharging excess water into nearby settlements.

Other communities such as Sampou, Gbaranma Sabagreia, Okoloba, in Sagbama, Ekeremor and Kolokuma-Opokuma Local Government Areas are also battling the flood.

 

 

 

Checks along the East-West Road indicated that the flood was already affecting some sections of it.

Worst hit is the Patani section in Delta that shares boundary with Bayelsa community, Adagbabiri, which is already submerged.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, schools in Bayelsa are on six weeks flood break to protect pupils and students from any disaster.

Gov Douye Diri of Bayelsa has inaugurated a task force on flood whose major mandate is to bring relief to flood victims.

 

 

However, one week after its inauguration, the team led by the Commissioner of Environment Mr Iselema Gbaranbiri, said the committee was visiting the impacted sites and would make recommendation to government.

The former army chief commended the efforts of the Nigerian military in the war against insecurity saying they have given their best within the circumstances they have found themselves. He however expressed optimism in the ability of the military to nip the security challenges in the bud very soon saying insecurity is a global occurrence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want to commend them (the military). They are doing well. They are doing their best within the circumstances they find themselves and what is happening. It (insecurity) is not only in Nigeria, it is global. What is happening is Nigeria is not an exception. Within our neighbours, we see what is happening and globally.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We see what is happening in Sudan, Ukraine, in the Middle East and so on. They (the military) need to remain resolute, remain focused and continue the project they are doing and surely they will succeed. For sure it (insecurity) cannot be permanent, there must be a solution and we can get out of it one day,” General Buratai told media

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The author, Brigadier General Fakokunde, while speaking with Tribune Online, said the books were written with the intention to solve societal problems such as stress, drug abuse and addiction as well as providing the leeway for teachers to manage stress associated with their profession.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said as builders of talents, teachers need the required skills and qualifications to excel and impart knowledge on their students as leaders of tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“If you look at these books, they are not just ordinary books, they are also working instruments addressing the problems of the society like problem of drug addicts, problem of occupational stress and others ravaging the workforce now. These are competencies they need to imbibe so that they can manage their stress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The rate of drug abuse is a serious thing now and is prevalent among the students and the youths. With these publications, we have instruments that can be used to manage drug abuse among our youths, our workforce and every strata of the society. The intention is to solve problems of the society and that is what we have done by unveiling these books.”

“The author has deemed it fit to give us tools that we can use to manage the stress and tackle drug abuse which is prevalent among our students right from primary schools. The books are apt, written at the right time. It is scholarly and the writing style is unique,” she said.
