A minor landslide on Saturday reportedly hit Nanka in the Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Speaking with newsmen, an environmentalist and native of the area, Mr Ikenna Ezenekwe, said the development caused panic, forcing residents to flee the place.

He said, ”There was panic in Ubaha village of Nanka community when residents fled over a minor landslide.

“Residents vacated the community over the fear of a possible major follow up due to the landslide which occurred after a downpour at night which caused a portion of the land to cave in.”

It was gathered that nobody died in the incident.

While calling for an urgent intervention by the relevant authority, Ezekwe said, “The rainy season of 2018 has reopened old wounds.

He said,”The people of Nanka who had suffered untold hardship in the hands of landslides are once again faced with another threat.

Ezenekwe who is the Nigeria coordinator of a New York-based nongovernmental organization, the Rural Communities Development Initiative, added,” Nanka presently dangles on the verge of another catastrophic landslide should immediate prophylactic measures are not taken by the government
