Flood invades Lagos community, traps pupils in school
A vicinity in Agege Local Government Area of Lagos State, was submerged in flood water, capturing some students in a Nursery and Primary school in the area following the persistent heavy downpour yesterday.
The heavy rainfall, which started as early as 8 am, affected both human and vehicular activities as most parts of the state was taken over by floods. As a result, motorists and commuters were trapped in traffic across the state.
A concerned resident of Orile-Agege, one of the worst hit areas said the pupils of Ladoje Nursery and Primary School in the area could not leave the premises because of the intensity of the rain.
Meanwhile, the State Government earlier assured residents not to panic at the sight of the flood, as it would soon recede as all efforts are on ground to ensure the safety of lives and property as well as flood-free Lagos, in spite of persistent rainfall.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said that there’s no excuse for road users to break traffic rules by taking one-way and going against traffic.
