In Ondo: Atlantic Ocean threatens community

Residents of Ayetoro community in Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State have called on the Federal Government to  save them  from being swept  away by  the Atlantic Ocean.

It was learnt that part of the coastal community had been submerged  after  the  sea  overflowed its banks, while property worth millions of naira had been destroyed.

According to Punch news,The  Secretary General of the community and a member of Ogeloyinbo-in-Council, Mr Dele Kudehinbu,  said over 200 buildings had been swept away  while many families had been displaced.

Also, the  Chairman, Board of Registered Trustees of the Holy Apostle Church, Apostle Iwasanmi Ajijo, confirmed that the ocean  had  wreaked havoc in the community.

According to him, the Federal Government, through the Niger Delta Development Commission, had awarded a contract to two firms to tackle the problem  but nothing had been done.

While calling on the government and other intervention agencies to intervene, Ajijo  said the solution to the problem was beyond what the community could afford.
