More than 10 families living on Trinity street in Akwakuma community in Owerri North local government area of Imo state are trapped in their homes following an erosion that prevented the individuals from running to safety.
Residents say the situation took a new dimension after a heavy downpour which lasted all through the night on Sunday till the early hours of Monday.
Some residents who spoke to Channels Television urged the government to come to their aid as a matter of urgency, so they can have good access roads to go to work, buy foodstuff, and do other daily activities.
