The oil-rich Ndokwa East Council of Delta State, host to the Okpai Gas Independent Power plant with a dedicated power supply to Aso Villa, Abuja, is submerged.
It is the same situation in other 79 communities and over 100 oil-producing communities in Ndokwa West and Ukwuani councils that are demanding N50 billion compensation from Abuja.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said it has recorded 108 deaths in the 12 flooded states. It also disclosed that 441,252 people were affected, while 13,031 houses and 122,653 farmlands were destroyed.
NEMA, in a situation update in Abuja, expressed concern that the large scale flooding might continue to rise further as assessments were ongoing, especially in Bayelsa and Rivers states believed to be among the worst hit.
