One of the victims, Mrs Rose Ekanem Rose whose roof was completely blown off at Akpa Ndem Street, Inyanhasang said it was really unfortunate as her the roof of her house was completely blown off by the breeze.

She said:” The rain started with heavy breeze and suddenly I had a large sound and in a twinkle of an eye the roof was off.

“All that rain that fell was on me and my children, we were just standing at the balcony of the shops in front of the major building, till the early hours of this morning, then we started scooping out the water and brought out mattresses soaked by water.

” We are appealing to State Emergency Management Agency, SEMA and state government to come to our aid even if its zinc, we will really appreciate it, we cant handle the repairs alone, we need assistance,” she said.

When contacted, the Director-General of SEMA in the state, Mr Princewill Ayim was not taking his calls.
