Flood renders 500 people
homeless in Ondo

For residents of Ayetoro community in Ilaje Local
Government Area of Ondo State, it was a day of agony after
a torrential rain wreaked havoc in the community.
With the effect of the rain taking its toll in the community,
which was ravaged by flood, it was gathered that over 500
people have been rendered homeless with over 700 houses
affected.
According to one of the affected residents of the
community, Mr. Emmanuel Aralu, the only church in the
town, the palace, health center, and schools were all
affected by the flood, stressing that some residents had fled
the coastal community because of the disaster.
Aralu also maintained that the socio-economic activities of
the community had been paralyzed as most of the people of
the community who engage in fishing had abstained from
the river and the ocean while most shops had been
destroyed.
Another resident, who was affected by the flood, Mrs.
Josephine explained that flooding has become a recurring
issue in the community.
She added that all efforts to call the attention of the state
government to the issue have been fruitless with no
measures taken.

“We need help from the government before the flood
washes the community away, the state and federal
governments should come to our aid.”
