Sambo’s Helicopter Destroys 78-Year-Old Woman’s Home

The sand stirred up by the helicopter conveying Vice-President Namadi Sambo to Buanchor, Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State on Friday destroyed a mud-house belonging to a 78-year- old woman, Mrs. Bessie Obi, when it landed in the community.

Sambo was in the community to ascertain the extent of damage caused by recent landslide from surrounding mountains silting rivers, streams and causing flooding in the area, including the only secondary school in the community which was totally submerged.

As soon as the mud-house collapsed, Bessie ran out and started crying profusely. She was quickly attended to by officers of the State Emergency Management Agency.

The mud-house had three rooms, an old wooden furniture and other household items.

The Director-General of SEMA, Mr. Vincent Aquah, who assessed the damage, sympathised with Obi and the four other occupants of the house and assured them that the matter would be addressed.

Sambo, was oblivious of the damage caused to Bessie’s hut by his aircraft. I think he should by now, because I’m reporting it. 😀

In a way, it might be fortunate for Bessie, because she stands a chance of owning a brand new home. 😉
