The Edo State Governorship Candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, Dr Azemhe Azena, has expressed his heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the victims of the rainstorm disaster, which claimed the lives of four people while injuring others at Jattu Market, in Etsako-West local government of Edo state recently.

In a special message signed by the candidate and released to the press by his media team in Benin City on Monday, the gubernatorial candidate expressed shock at the level of damage “caused by this natural disaster in a popular market that has become a hub of commerce and a place where many Edo residents earn their livelihood from time immemorial” he said.

“This unfortunate incident calls for an urgent need to carry out an immediate investigation into the surrounding circumstances of the crisis with a view to finding possible solutions to mitigate the effects of a possible future occurrence” he added.

Dr Azemhe Azena further prayed for the quick recovery of the injured, who are currently receiving treatment in hospitals.

It should be recalled that a rainstorm which followed the heavy downpour on Monday morning, fell some trees in the market where many were taking shelter. This led to the death of four persons and injury to many at the popular Jattu Market.
