Not less than 60 widows in Agbor, headquarters of Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, on Monday, December 21, 2020 smiled home with food items donated by an illustrious son of the kingdom.

The widows, mostly emerging from Triumphant Baptist Church, Ime-Obi, Agbor including women from Ihaikpen community received one 25kg bag of rice, one carton of indomie noodles, tomatoes paste and wrapper each.The donor who chose to remain anonymous, said the gesture was a yearly exercise to support the widows in the community.

He said, “I know their major burden is how to feed and that is why I took it upon myself to show them love as part of me giving back to the society.

As you can see, these widows are really in need and their voices are not necessarily heard by those in government and other NGO’s.This donation is just a token, but I know it would go a long way in putting smiles on the windows faces while they celebrate the yuletide. Hopefully, I will do more for them as time goes on.”

Illegal dump site at Afia-Ogbemai: Resident cries out

By Marvin Enyosa

Residents of the street directly behind Afia-Ogbemai in Ime-Obi, Agbor head quarters of Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, have raised alarm over the pollution of their environment following the illegal refuse dump site located almost at the center of the market.

One of the residents who spoke to newsmen in tears on the hazardous nature of the dump site, Rev. Chuks Omezi, lamented the untold hardship on his household, regreting that the bad odour coming from the market dump site, chased three of his children off the house.

He explained that his family members and his church, Triumphant Royal Family Gospel Ministry, located few feets away from the dump site, had constantly witnessed difficulties during market days as the only road leading to residential buildings of the street would be covered by traders of the market.He asserted that most times, when they returned home, they would see human feaces or inhale odours of urine’s round corners of his building which is just less than eight feets to the dump site.

His words, “we are really suffering in this area because of the illegal dump site position just beside my building.

“We learnt that the host community, Ogbomudein, gave the market the portion to use as dump site, but failed to considered the effect on residents health.“

As the case may be, I no longer open my widows because of the bad odours coming from the dustbin. Three of my children have abandoned the house. Almost every week, it is either my children and I are admitted at the hospital for treatment or we are at the pharmacy buying drugs.

“Sadly, neither the local government council or the Councilors representing Ward 1 and 2, are doing anything to help us savaged the situation, but would not fail to come to the market on market days to collect revenue.”

“We also found out that some persons would throw sacks containing dead fowls on the dustin amongst other waste items which haven decomposed, becomes dangerous to our health.”

As at press time, the environment of the market was in to total mess, while the building of the Rev. Omezi, was indeed endangered by the heap of refuse at the illegal dump site.Meanwhile, Rev. Omezi and other residents of the area used the medium to call on the state government to visit the environment in other to assertain the ugly conditions under which residents behind the market resides.
