Ajani said: “The federal government has deployed the services of Julius Berger Construction Company to put the road back to use.

“They (Julius Berger) will fix the road within three days. The failure of this road is an unfortunate incident, and this is caused by blockage of natural flood channel with buildings and blocked drainage in the area which led to washing off of the earth underneath.”

The Anambra State Commissioner for Works, Marcel Ifejiofor while describing the incident as very unfortunate, regretted the hardship the situation has caused Anambra people.
