Izunwanne, a body of senior journalists from the southeast geo-political zone, has raised the alarm over what it described as ravaging, unrelenting erosion at Amaeke in Ngwo, Udi LGA, Enugu State and called for urgent government intervention.
The group in a statement singed by its Coordinator, Abuchi Anueyiagu, and made available to newsmen in Enugu on Friday, said Amaeke community is at the verge of being wiped away from the surface of the earth by the rampaging erosion.
It said that the call became important following the menace of uncontrolled soil erosion that is currently ravaging the community and almost wiping it out of the surface of the earth.
According to the group, “a member of the organisation, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani of the Police Service Commission had raised alarm for the issue and had in a clarion call told Izunwanne the plight of the community.
“There is a disturbing rage of the gods as my Community, Amaeke in Ngwo, Enugu State, goes under a terrific and disastrous flooding. We are on our knees begging for a national/state emergency before the community is wiped out.
“Houses, agricultural products, business premises have been submerged in this unprecedented ecological disaster.
“Amaeke Community, an industrial haven, hosts several high tech companies including the Ama Brewery plant, 7up bottling company, Coca Cola, Aqua Rapha, major financial institutions, Sharon Paints, aluminium companies, including the legendary 9th mile corner – one of the centres of civilization in Nigeria.
The statement said the community had written many times begging for help but not one came.
Please, Amaeke Community needs attention now from both Government and the Private sector”, praying
God “to help and save us from this calamity.”the statement reads.
