   Augustine Adiekwe, to this end, said that he had personally spent huge sums of money to stop the flood from entering into his compound, but could not achieve more than erecting a high flood channel which gave them little solace.

  Sir Adiekwe took our correspondent to the back space in his house where gully erosion had dug alarming pit with torrential flood threat.

  According to him, the work sponsored by the member representing Nnewi North, Nnewi South and Ekwusigo Local Government Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Chris Azubogu, has been washed away by the flood.
