Harmattan fire has burnt and destroyed Community Primary School Ubahu in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Cause of the fire outbreak which occurred in the evening of Thursday January 19, 2021 was yet to be determined as at the time of filing this report.
This school which was in pitiable condition before it was reconstructed years back by the administration of Pastor Sam Iyiogwe, a former chairman of Nkanu East LGA is seeking urgent government intervention.
A community leader who spoke to newsmen said the situation is very devastating and heart breaking because the former Council chairman spent a lot to rebuild it.
He lamented that further resources would be needed to rescue the school at a time other infrastructure are competing for attention.
Nkanu East, one of the communities in dire need of infrastructure is however lucky to have one of the few performing chairmen in Hon Uche Nwobodo but availability of fund is surely an issue.
The community is thus calling on Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to intervene and save the poor village pupils who have no alternative.
