Robbers Invade Flood Victims Camp In Anambra

Robbers Invade Flood Victims Camp In Anambra

Some people suspected to be robbers have invaded the Crowder Memorial Primary School, Onitsha, where 950 flood victims are camped and carted away some of the food items and cash donated to them.

This came as Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, yesterday warned against playing politics with the human tragedy that had so far trailed the flooding ravaging parts of the country, and warned those involved to desist.

The robbery happened as a philanthropist, Mr. Patrick Obianwu, who visited some of the displaced persons weekend, urged Governor Peter Obi to take measures to prevent the outbreak of epidemic in the communities affected by the flood disaster ravaging parts of the state.

It was gathered that two of the robbers who went to steal at the Onitsha camp were apprehended, while others escaped.

Some of the flood victims, who were cursing the robbery suspects when Vanguard visited the camp, wondered why such an inhuman treatment should be meted out to them, especially at this time.

Meanwhile, Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has warned that it amounted to the worst form of cynicism for some people to be play politics with human tragedy brought about by the unfortunate flooding ravaging parts of the country.

Obi, who spoke through his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, was reacting to a statement credited to an official of Campaign for Democracy, CD,  who insinuated that the governor was making showmanship with the flood issue without doing much.
