WARRI-MASSIVE flood, resulting from downpour and the overflow of the ocean, have ravaged communities in Ugborodo, Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State.

The affected communities include Madangho, Ode-Ugborodo, Ajaudaibo, Ogidigben, Akpakpa and the multi-million naira ultra-modern 911 Beach and Resort close to the ocean.

Speaking to Vanguard on the incident, Chief Executive Officer of 911 Beach and Resort, Mr. Ayiri Emami, siad that despite their appeal to the authorities for the construction of the Ugborodo shore protection over the years, the Federal Government had not deemed it fit to come to their aid.

Ayiri said it was disappointing that an area that host Chevron Tank Farm and other major oil installations and facilities can be deliberately left to the surging ocean water while the oil majors in the areas take proactive measure to only protect their areas of operations.

He said: “A situation where government waits for youths to take to violence to press home their legitimate demands is not good for our growing democracy.”
