[ Masterweb Reports: Victor Edozie reports ] - For hundreds of residents of Graceland, Oyigbo West, AP and Mbano Camp of Oyigbo in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, this year’s rainy season has not been a pleasant time for them.
 
Oyigbo, which is a few kilometres from Port Harcourt, the state capital, is a fast growing city with 28 oil wells and flow stations. The Afam Power Station is located in the area.
 
Over 200 residents of Graceland Oyigbo West and Mbano Camp in Oyigbo were recently displaced by flood. Hundreds of them relocated to other places while some use canoes to get to their houses.
 
Also affected is St. Peter’s Catholic Parish in Oyigbo West. The Parish Priest, Rev Fr. Victor Onyeukwu, called on the state government to come to their aid by creating a canal to channel water out of the area.
 
"This year’s rains have caused a lot of damage to us. The entire compound is flooded. We are appealing to the state government to come to our aid. Now that the dry season is setting in we want the government to assist us and other residents of the area," he said.
 
When our reporter visited the affected area the entire community was deserted. A few residents that cannot afford new houses engaged the services of canoe paddlers who convey them to and from their houses at N100 per trip.
 
A resident of Graceland, John Uche, said they were in a "total mess" as a result of the devastation caused by the flood.
 
He said most of the residents had packed out of the area.
 
"This year’s rainy season has done more harm than good to residents of this community. The rain was so heavy that all the houses in this area are flooded. If you look round you will find out that all the houses here are empty. Residents have reallocated and moved to safer places. We that have no place to go have remained here. We have no option than to use canoes to move in and out of our homes.
 
"That is the only alternative we have to get to our homes because the flood water is very deep. There may be dangerous reptiles here and nobody dares risk his life," he said."
 
He called on the state government to come to their rescue. Another resident, Ajie Chinedu, blamed their plight on people who built houses on water channels.
 
‘’In this area people take laws into their hands and this is responsible for the problem we have found ourselves. People build houses without recourse to urban planning regulations. Almost all the houses here are sitting on water channels and that is the reason why everywhere is flooded each time it rains. We are in real trouble," he said.
 
While calling on residents to observe city development laws while building houses, Uche appealed to the state government to reconstruct the road leading to the area and provide proper drainage channels.
 
Another resident whose house was submerged by flood, Philip George, said: "I am yet to recover from the damage caused by this flood. I lost all my properties to the flood. I completed my house last year and moved in with my family. I did not know that this area was this bad until the rain started.
 
"I did not take it serious until water covered my house. We only struggled to survive but almost all my properties were destroyed. We were able to pick a few things out of the house. I am presently squatting with a relation. My family is also putting up somewhere. We are waiting for the water to dry up so that we can go back."
 
Another resident, Imelda Johnson, said: "The canoe is helping us a lot. This is the only way we can get to our houses. The young boys that are paddling the canoe are of great help to us. Without them I wonder how we would have accessed our houses." One of the canoe paddlers, Gift Onyeka, said: "When I saw how the entire area was flooded I contacted a few friends and we decided to rent canoes which we use to ferry people across the flooded areas. We have about four canoes, human traffic was high at the peak of the rainy season. During that period we made between N3000 and N4000 daily. But as the rain is subsiding, the entire area is drying up and it’s affecting our business. I am not happy that people are living in such a pitiable environment but their suffering has become a blessing to us," he said.
 
Another canoe paddler known as Osas said they made money from ferrying residents from the flooded areas.
 
"The suffering of other people has suddenly put smiles on our faces. But we have been of help to them also because without the canoes how would they enter their houses. It was indeed a good season for us as we took home between N3000 and N4000 daily. But as the rainy comes to an end and the flooded areas are drying up our business is equally going down," he said.
 
The state government early this year awarded a contract for the reconstruction of the major road leading to the flooded community.
 
The project has reached about 80 percent completion but there is no drainage to channel water out of the residential areas.
 
Governor Wike has directed the state’s Ministry of Environment to work on how to tackle the flood. The Deputy Governor, Dr Ipalibo Banigo and the Commissioner for Environment, Dr Roseline Konya, recently went on an assessment tour of the affected communities and promised that the government would work out modalities to avert future occurrence. Some of the areas visited included Eneka and Choba.

[ Masterweb Reports: Eugene Agha reports ] - No fewer than 399 suspects were arrested by troops during the Exercise Crocodile Smile conducted in Lagos and Ogun States respectively.
 
The 35 Artillery Brigade Commander, Brig.-Gen. Bassey Adonkie, who made the disclosure while giving an appraisal of the exercise at the closing ceremony of the Crocodile Smile 2 at 192 Battalion, Ajilete, Ogun State Saturday, said the Crocodile Smile 2 led to the arrest of suspected armed robbers, kidnappers and other criminals and recovery of ammunition.
 
A total of 399 suspects were arrested for different offences across the South-West region and handed over to various security agencies concerned.
 
In addition, 20 assorted arms were recovered, while illicit drugs were also recovered and handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA),” he said.
 
The commander who said over 1,000 officers drawn from Army formations in Lagos and Ogun states participated in the exercise, asserted that criminal activities had reduced following the crackdown.
 
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, who was represented by the Chief of Training and Operations, Maj.-Gen. David Ahmadu, said that the exercise leveraged on the gains of the Crocodile Smile 1.
 
Experience drawn from the exercise conducted in 2016 revealed that criminals and miscreants do flee from areas of ongoing operations to seek safe haven and cause security menace in areas hitherto regarded as peaceful. It was in line with this development, that I deemed it necessary to extend the areas of coverage for this year’s exercise Crocodile Smile to cover the South-West and South-South regions of the country,” he said.
 
He said that the exercise was a joint operation conducted with other sister agencies, adding that it improved comradeship, inter-agency cooperation and synergy.
 
The General Officer Commanding (GOC), 81 Division, Maj.-Gen. Peter Dauke, said the exercise was able to mitigate prevalent security challenges such as pipeline vandalism, militancy, ritual killings, smuggling, kidnapping and drug related offences.

[ Masterweb Reports: Hope Abah reports ] - A popular business man and owner of Titogate eatery in Makurdi, Chief Isaac Akinkumi, has fed over 500 people with free food to mark this year's World Food Day.
 
Akinkumi said the gesture which took place at his business premises along the railway, near the Low Level roundabout was his own way of marking the World Food Day and giving back to the society.
 
"Not everybody can afford to eat three square meals per day. On this United Nation's World Food day, I try to feed somebody to make them happy," he said.
 
He also stressed the need for governments to ensure supplements in foods in order to boost nutrients in the human body rather than letting the common people's health degenerate to the point of drug consumption, especially when in excess.
 
Akinkumi urged the Benue State government to fully invest in Agriculture and as well make farming attractive to its teeming youths so as to continue to maintain its lead as the food basket of the nation.
 

Meanwhile, some beneficiaries of the free lunch thanked Akinkumi for the gesture.

[ Masterweb Reports: Emma Elekwa reports ] - A governorship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Anambra state who lost out at the party primary, Zeribe Ezeanuna, has appealed to his fellow defeated aspirants to queue behind the party's candidate, Oseloka Obaze to ensure victory at the November 18 poll.
 
He said supporting Obaze would enable the party reclaim its mandate from the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
 
Addressing newsmen in Awka, Ezeanuna described as unnecessary, the purported gang up by the defeated aspirants to fight Obaze out of the contest, urging them to put their personal interest behind and pursue that of the party.
 
He acknowledged the pains associated in losing election, urging the aspirants to accept the outcome of the results of the poll in good faith as only one person would definitely emerge as the party's flag bearer.
 
"Those criticizing the system and the nomination process wanted to benefit from its imperfection but when they failed, they felt so much aggrieved to the extent of trying to destabilize the party and that is why I am urging them, as my fellow aspirants to support the candidate of our great party," he said.

[ Masterweb Reports: Seun Opejobi reports ] - Nigerian Governnent has formally informed the governments of the United States, US, United Kingdom, UK, and other foreign countries of its decision to declare the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as a terrorist organisation.
 
An Abuja Federal High Court in Abuja had, on August 20, proscribed IPOB, following a motion filed by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN).
 
The court had also ordered that the proscription be published in the Federal Government’s gazette which was done.
 
Against this backdrop, both the US and UK had faulted the declaration, insisting that the group was not a terrorist organisation.
 
Speaking with Punch, on Wednesday, Malami said some foreign countries have been duly notified.
 
 
Malami disclosed that the Federal Government would be seeking a Mutual Legal Assistance from the foreign governments to stop those funding the group and deal with IPOB members as terrorists.
 
The report said Federal Ministry of Justice, through its Central Authority Unit, had sent separate letters to all the foreign missions operating in Nigeria.
 
According to Malami, "Just think of any embassy you know is operating in Nigeria, they have all been served.
 
"All we did was to send copies of the gazettes attached to the cover letters to notify them of the status of IPOB as far as Nigeria is concerned.
 

"Although the proscription widely reported in newspapers, has been published in the Federal Government’s gazette and advertised in newspapers as ordered by the court, we had to formalise it by notifying our foreign friends, I mean the foreign governments, which have embassies in Nigeria; and that was exactly what we did by sending copies of the gazette to them."

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - The wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, has alleged that her husband's recent long medical vacation in London emboldened the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu to create a state out of a state.
 
Mrs Buhari spoke Monday at the State House in Abuja during the commencement of a two-day stakeholders' meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition organized by her pet project, Future Assured.
 

"As a result of spending several months by the president outside Nigeria, a 40-year-old man who was still living in his father's house, created a state out of a state and that is a major set back for the country and the health sector did not benefit," she said.
