PHOTOS: Flood Ravages Parts Of Lagos Amid Heavy Rain


Cars and property in several parts of Lagos have been submerged following heavy rainfall yesterday.

Both the island and mainland axis of the state were affected by the flood.

Several residents have taken to social media to share pictures and videos of their areas.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has urged residents of the state to observe safety precautions.

Ibrahim Farinloye, acting assistant zonal coordinator, south-west zonal office, NEMA, said residents should avoid driving when flood covers half of the vehicles’ tyres.

“Once the rainwater gets to half of the wheels it sweeps off your vehicle,” he said.

“Kindly park and move on to the higher ground for safety.”

Farinloye also advised that trekking should be avoided during downpours.

“The rainwater must have risen above our ankles, once it happens like this, the flood has the capacity to carry us off,” he added.

“Residents of Lagos Island, Eti-Osa, Alimosho, Amuwo Odofin, Ikeja, Ojo, Kosofe, Apapa, Epe, Oshodi-Isolo, Shomolu, Surulere and Ajeromi /Ifelodun LGAs are advised to be more careful when it rains.”

Flooding issues have become more frequent in Nigeria as a result of climate change.
