Indigenes of Okebunoye Umubelu Alor town, Idemili south, Anambra state, have called for an urgent intervention of the federal and state government following the menace of gully erosion, which is threatening to sack them from their ancestral homes.
The community said the gully erosion posed serious challenge to more than hundreds of families lamenting that they no longer relate with members of the neighbouring communities because they have been cut off.
A mansion was spotted very close to the erosion site as the villagers are calling for immediate help.
This is coming days after fifteen persons were killed by gully erosion in Umuozu community of Otolo in Anambra State with investigations already on the way.
The Minister of Mines and Steel Development Abubakar Bwari has sent an inspection team to the community with a view to getting a lasting solution.
