He said that about 400 staff of the company had been directed to stop work.

The communities in Ogbaru are living on the River Niger coastline and often experience flooding.

Sule-Ugboma said that the farm sitting on 20 hectares of land had lost a fortune to the flood disaster.

“We have lost more than 25,000 poultry birds, fish in our ponds worth several millions of naira, and numerous other property worth several millions of naira,” he said.

According to Sule-Ugboma, the flood has equally affected some bridges on Onitsha-Ndoni Road, especially Umunnakwo Bridge.

NAN reports that the collapse of the same Umunnakwo Bridge in 2022 resulted in a boat mishap which claimed some lives.

Sule-Ugboma said that collapse of bridges on Ogbaru-Ndoni Road posed dangers to residents and travellers, who had resorted to crossing the river by wooden boats.

He appealed to the federal and Anambra State governments to urgently address the situation.
