Delta king describes this year’s flood as genocide, tasks FG to sue Cameroon

Asaba—The Ovie of Idjerhe kingdom in Delta State, His Majesty Monday Whiskey, on Tuesday described the devastating flood across the country as genocide against the people of Nigeria by the government of Cameroon.

According to the Tribune newspaper, the Ovie, who spoke to journalists in his palace at Jesse, urged the Federal Government to go back to the drawing board, discuss with the Cameroonian government or take legal actions for compensation.

“This is a serious national disaster. I don’t see any reason why the Nigerian government should not sue the Cameroon government or individual states affected by the flooding should not sue the Cameroon government with over 600 deaths recorded in Nigeria communities with property worth billions and trillions of naira destroyed as a result of the heavy flooding.

“This is genocide. This is not flood, this is genocide. If the water is open to wipe away Nigerians and Nigeria, then we must as a country resist it,” he said.

The Federal government recently disclosed that over 600 persons have been killed by the flood and more than a thousand displaced across the country.
