Following persistent heavy rainfall in the commercial capital of Nigeria. Residents of Lagos are having to deal with flash flood that has paralyzed both human and vehicular activities in some parts of the state.
The floods have taken over many parts of Lagos, including high-brow areas like Lekki, since the rains began to pour uncontrollably from Wednesday.
Lagos workers have had to deal with struggling to go to work amid traffic caused by the floods.
Many transporters have abandoned their vehicles to sit at home until the rains stop to avoid vehicle breakdown.
Some frustrated Lagosians, including music executive, Ubi Franklin and popular sports broadcaster, Charles Anazodo, have taken to social media to share their experiences.
Lamenting about his house flooded with water caused by the rain, Ubi wrote;
“At About 5:30 am, I heard a knock on my door, and when I came out it was my PA “sir the house is flooded” everywhere was flooded.
The Roof came off, POP soaked and it was raining directly into one of the guest rooms upstairs and luckily the person sleeping in the room was not hurt.
Stay Safe Guys
I Dey here dey swim for my house
Thank God we are all safe and no one was hurt.”
