A devastating flood has claimed a 50-year-old woman at Mebiowa Okposi in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
The victim, identified as Grace, was said to have been among several persons washed away on the road leading to the Njoku Oha bridge in the community, on Saturday night.
Farms in the area were also submerged.
A community leader, Chief Okereke Ogudu, who confirmed the incident on telephone told our correspondent that they were still counting their losses, adding that the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) was yet to be informed.
