It’s said the man was in the water for three days, holding onto a stick for three days and three nights before he was discovered.
Three days after he was purportedly carried away by flooding along the East-West Road in Bayelsa state, a Nigerian man has been found alive.
According to community manager Akpos Malafakumo Best, who shared pictures of the man on social media, the man was found alive in the same place.
Akpos said the man was in the water for three days, holding onto a stick for three days and three nights before he was discovered.
The photos Akpos shared showed rescuers evacuating the stranded man to safety with the use of a canoe.
“This young man was swept away by the water current at this very spot East-West Road 3days ago. He had been in the water holding onto a stick for 3 days and night, only to be rescued today alive. Please, don’t travel East-West & Ugheli-Bayelsa roads for now.” Akpo’s wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Kogi State residents are currently suffering one of worst flooding disasters ever experienced in the country.
Houses are submerged, electricity is totally cut off, roads are blocked and it has almost become a full-blown crisis in the state.
In a bid to survive and go about their daily business, Canoes have been deployed to float on major roads in the state.
