some of the residents indigenes who took to various social media to react says when raining season is yet to come down for the year maybe before the month of August we may be counting from a million upward before they will tackle the problem. AN EYE WITNESS said ”I saw them yesterday when I was coming back from Asaba, the driver was already dead it happened towards okpoko junction / Coke bridge head they fell inside that big culvert that leads to River Niger during that heavy rain that fall on Sunday night. Another eye witness said she is not sure they Are  up to 17? Well all I know is passengers in a hummer bus died and only one old woman survived. She was also holding her bible.

Others have also been asking questions ”Why should after construction  in Onitsha wide culverts are left open?
It’s seriously a high public risk that the government should do something about it’s a repeated occurrence in Onitsha flood always swept off people to death.
Dizzy Okonkwo also wondered why the driver couldn’t wait for the rains to stop ”The useless Driver couldn’t wait for 30 minutes for that heavy rain to stop. How can you be driving over 100/120 KM/H under such conditions. The driver should have died alone.
Ifeoma said no one should blame the governments, Sometimes we blame Government over our own stupidity, how can someone just wake up and said that floods drive a bus with 18 passengers inside big gutters in Onitsha and people get mind to blame Government into digging a big gutters that floods swipe the bus into the gutters, the blame should be on driver and passengers if they are aware of that.  let think about this how can a flood carry a bus with 18 passengers inside.? think driver mistakenly drive inside the big gutters.
