Erosion has affected at about 300 homes and sent over 4,000 children out of school in Anambra state.

Caused by a gully, six villages in  Amawbia Community in
Awka South Local Government area of Anambra State were adversely affected.

As a result of the devastating effect, 4,000 children are unable to go to school.

Mr. Okey Maduforo, Director Community Environmental Media Awareness (CEMA) has called for urgent intervention to stop the erosion from causing more havoc in the community.

Union secondary school and Kabe
College have been deserted as a result of the erosion.

Also affected is May Rose Hotel.

Worse still, Mr. Chukwuma Okoye, a lawmaker representing Awka South II State constituency residence was cut off by the erosion.

This is even as construction of the road leading to the lawmaker village Adebebe was started three days to election and was abandoned immediately after the election.

The erosion makes it impossible for cars and motorcycles to move on the road forcing school children to stay at home.

Farmlands and buildings were also affected.

When reporters sought the reaction of the state government,  Secretary to the Anambra state Governor Mr. Willie Nwokoye and  the Head of Service Mr. Harry Uduh said the ministry of works has a better explanation.
