This is the Akadoro bridge.
A river that separates Ekka and Inyere wards. A friend of our network, Charles Nwoke, has shared with us the story of this locale which is his native locale. He called this particular bridge a link between the two communities. The villagers, motorcycle and bicycle riders, and farmers make use of this bridge.
The bridge is constructed with bamboo wood and rope. The government abandoned the bridge in the form above. It claimed many lives as people drown below uncontrollably from time to time.
The state of this bridge is a reflection on the struggle of Nwoke's local community with poverty and violence. Nwoke states that victims of Islamic terrorists that disguise themselves as the local herdsmen and attack in the local region included a place called Enugu, Nigeria.
Raising awareness of the state of local infrastructure in rural Nigeria is the first step in restoring both the integrity of structures and the security of local communities. This is why we have shared this story.
