Residents of Lagos State yesterday witnessed a heavy downpour that caused not just massive flooding in parts of the mega city but also destroyed some properties.

Son of veteran Yoruba actor, Ajirebi, Samuel has taken to his Instagram page, lamenting how his father’s house got flooded after the heavy Lagos downpour.

 

According to Samuel, the incident left him wondering if there really is a government in Nigeria.

In his words: ”S E R I O U S L Y S A D RIGHT NOW ❗️❗️❗️ I get to think at times that are we sure we have a government in this country?. Look at what I met on going to visit my family today.

 A flooded house due to the the overflowing canal behind our street. To make matters worse, no one was at home save my dad, so the old man and I had to be saving properties and scooping water out of the house!


This year makes it ten years of repeated and consistent occurrence of this with severe damages done annually to properties, at times leading to temporary displacement!


“Letters have been written, tv appearances made, press releases written, still no significant step taken by the government to channel the overrunning Canal…. This is not a sympathy plea for anything, but a call to The state and local government authorities of Lagos ( @akinwunmiambode and @jidesanwoolu ) Oke Odo LGA respectively to please wake up to your responsibility and stop making citizens suffer in neglect! We need Governmental intervention in Oke Isagun Community of Oke Odo LGA!
We lose properties! We lose rest whenever we see rain signs! Tonight is going to be a partial prayer moment for families, because it must not rain tonight…. No house for us to sleep in anymore!
This is sad and heartbreaking”

 

Recall that TheNewsGuru had reported that some motorists and commuters were stranded and had herculean task getting to their places of work.

 

Some of the major areas affected include the Kingsway road in Ikoyi, Toyin and Kodesoh streets in Ikeja among others.

Apongbon axis in Lagos Island and Toyin Street in Ikeja were equally affected.

At the Ogudu end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, traffic was almost at a standstill as rainwater took over the road, forcing motorists to move at a very slow pace.
