Breaking: Heavy Flood Sweeps Away Director Finance Of FCT High Court
Director of Finance and Accounts of Federal Capital Territory High Court, Tony Okecheme has been swept away by heavy flood.
The incident happened along Galadimawa roundabout, Abuja.
Okecheme was on his way to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport when his car got stuck in the floor flood at Galadimawa roundabout, Abuja.
The finance director was swept away by the raging flood, but his driver, whose name could not be immediately ascertained, was rescued by some young boys in the area.
The driver was said to have been taken to Asokoro hospital, but his boss was yet to be located as of the time of filing this report.
Eyewitnesses said the National Emergency Management Agency officials who came to the scene failed to rescue Okecheme and his driver who were reportedly trapped in the flood for about an hour before the water swept away the director.
His car, which was filled with mud water, was, however, pulled out of the ravines by the rescuers, who were angry over NEMA’s failure to rescue the man.
Two young girls who claimed to be Okecheme’s children were seen weeping uncontrollably at the scene of the incident.
