Chief Ogochukwu Nwasike who is the Chairman of the Flood Committee in Ogbaru Local Government Area, Anambra State, has disclosed that residents still trapped in the flooded communities are refusing to be lifted to the Internally Displaced Camps provided across the state.
Nwasike pointed out that the attitude is presently hampering smooth rescue operations around the flooded communities.
He lamented that even though the flood waters had reached the roof tops of buildings, the residents were turning down evacuation measures on flimsy reasons.
According to him, those still remaining at the flooded communities are refusing to be lifted into safety because they are protecting their houses and farmlands from being vandalised.
