“The Nigeria military should come rescue Bayelsans, this is now a National emergency situation.

“We have no food, no fuel, no homes, hospitals closed down. This is a National emergency, the military should come rescue Bayelsans.”

In a similar cry, the Special Assistant on Media to the Interim Administrator of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Udengs Eradiri attributed the plight of the people to the poor state of the East West Road.

Udengs wrote;

“The East West road is cut off and Bayelsa is already suffering the brunt. No food , fuel and utilities will come in for another one month which will cause untold hardship.

“I am trying my best to get NDDC to act but Bayelsa government should get construction company to go drop hardcore on the broken portions of the road so that despite the water pressure food and supplies can reach Yenagoa and stranded people can evacuate.”

Daily Report understands that the rising flood has submerged almost every town in the state, including Yenago, the state capital.
