Calamity waiting to happen is the cry from Residents and commuters in Mgbee, Akokwa and Ogboko, all in Imo State.
Road users have criticised Former Governor, Rochas Okorocha, over the poor construction of road leading to the communities.
They appealed to the incumbent, His Excellency, Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, to come to their rescue.
It was gathered that a bridge leading straight to Ogboko, which is Okorocha’s village, has caved in for the third time after construction.
The Mgbee bridge which is currently a death trap is a leading route that connects Orlu to Ideato-North and South local government areas of the state. Ogboko is in Ideato-South local government area.
A portion of the bridge caved in, leading to the closure of that section of the bridge. Motorists now use one lane due to the danger posed by the collapsed portion of the bridge.
It was gathered that the collapsed portion has been repaired two times. The bridge caved in shortly after use. It has collapsed again, as the former governor was about to leaving office in May.
According to the residents of this communities, the opening is very dangerous as terribly poor jobs were done on the other two occasions that the bridge was repaired.
They appealed to Ihedioha to come to their rescue because this is a major access route in and out of the town.
