An erosion disaster in Abule Oloni Community, Lantoro Abeokuta has rendered no fewer than 20 family homeless in Ogun State.

As a result of this new development, many residents have abandoned their various houses to save their lives and properties over the flood disaster.

The Chairman of the community, Chief Lasisi Shamudeen, who addressed newsmen urged the government to come to their aids.

Shamudeen explained that the erosion problem had destroyed roads, property and at the same time, threatening their lives.

Also speaking, the Secretary of Abule Oloni Community Development Association Mr. Ayinde Lekan, the government was nonchalant to the plight of the community.

He said: “Erosion has destroyed many houses and shops, which had rendered some members of the community jobless.

”It has affected our businesses, because, apart from the fact that some people have left the community because of this erosion, people don’t want to come to leave in the community.”
