Sakpra stated this when he briefed Journalists on the activities and achievements of his Office at the ongoing Ministerial press briefing in Asaba.
The Commissioner who stated that the destruction was highly devastated stated that government was working seriously through SEMA and NEMA to bring relief to the community.
Following the tragedy, which rendered several thousand people homeless, the community has been thrown into a state of despair, as over 200 houses had their roofs completely or partially torn off while economic trees, electricity poles and cables, some churches, government owned and private schools were not also spared.
Some structures at James Welsh Grammar School, Emevor were among property destroyed by the natural disaster, which began at about 8.25 pm on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 after a downpour.
President-General of Emevor Community, Engr. Moses Agboro had called on individuals and corporate bodies for support, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), as well as the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to come to the aid of the community and affected families.
