Refuse dumps all over Umuahia (Abia State)
Residents of Umuahia, the Abia State capital, have said they face health risk if the growing dumps of refuse in various parts of the city are not immediately evacuated.
Southern City News observed that most refuse buckets positioned at strategic locations in the cities had been burnt by residents in their attempt to decongest the overflowing wastes.
The sanitary situation in the state, it was gathered, worsened following the failure of the Waste Management Agency to pay workers’ salaries for months.
