The video below was taken on Friday last week showing how several parts of the Imo State capital Owerri were flooded following rain. The video is from a major thoroughfare in the city around Wetherall Road.
A woman in a motorised tricycle known as “keke napep” could be heard lamenting conditions in the city and state under Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Speaking in Igbo, she said “Owerri people are suffering, Owerri is finished”, among other comments. The road in the video seems to have been constructed with no regard for any form of drainage.
