Uduaghan, represented by Sir Stanley Rapu, Director of Humanitarian Affairs in the ministry, expressed the state government’s unwavering commitment to providing relief to victims.

According to her: “ the essence of this visit is not only to sympathise with you but also to assure you that the state government will stand in solidarity with you during this trying period.”

One of the victims(name withheld), recounted that the rainstorm struck at about 6 pm on that fateful day adding that the roof of their house was carried away while her children who were at home during the incident watched helplessly.
