According to reports, the victims were trying to cross the road before they were swept away by the surging flood into the deep gutter by the road side.

It was gatheted that a rescue mission was launched by the residents of the area as the corpses of the victims were later recovered.

Eze who shared photos of the victims wrote; “An Okada rider and a young man have just been swept away by the flood at UNN first gate… If you live around Nsukka and your father didn’t return tonight know he was the Okada rider.

“The young man he was carrying should be between the age of 24 to 29. It’s sad but before our eyes we witnessed tragedy.

“Befory own eyes, the shock wouldn’t even allow me record the moment. They tried crossing the road in the process and the flood was too much so it used force and dragged them into the widest gutter, people around said the end of that gutter is in another town, we doubt their survival because their heads were already hitting the gutter sides.”
