5 Meters High Refuse Shuts Down Street In Ikom

The Old Market road in Ikom local government area has been shut down due to a huge pile of refuse that has taken over.

The road, less than a kilometer in length connects Oche-Dore street known for harboring prostitutes to the busy Calabar road and lies just a kilometer south of the popular Four Corners in Ikom.

A resident told CrossRiverWatch that the refuse dump began as a litter less than 6 months ago and has turned into the major dump site in Ikom main town.

A supermarket, Surplus Value is located just beside the Oche-Dore end of the link road and customers as well as staff have complained bitterly about the stench and sore sight of the garbage.

This comes as some residents have accused the Ikom Urban Development Authority of failing to live up to its responsibilities with the dump site said to be about 5 meters at its highest point.

A trader, Mary Eyam (not actual name) told CrossRiverWatch on phone that: “I have moved my business from that place in December because I won’t die from the incompetence of a state government agency.”
