While commiserating with the relations of the deceased, the governor presented the sum of N500,000 to the family.

Obiano also visited the rice farm which irate villagers allegedly destroyed following the death of the woman and her daughter.

Condemning the act, Obiano appealed to the people to stop taking the laws into their own hands in such circumstances.

He said,

“Stop taking the laws into your hands. You should report such matters to the appropriate authorities for prompt action.”

The governor also paid condolence visits to the families of late Mr. Michael Ejimofor Okolie of Ubaru Village, Igbariam; and late Mr. Godwin Ezinwa of Achalla-Uno, Nteje, who also died in flood disasters.

He assured them of government assistance in the burial of their loved ones.

Speaking on behalf of the family, the traditional ruler of Nteje, Igwe Rowland Odegbo, thanked the governor for what he called “running a responsive government.”
