Lagosians Lament As Flood Takes Over Parts Of Lekki, Lagos Island


People’s homes have been flooded while cars have been submerged in water following the heavy downpour in Lagos.

Lekki phase 1 was visible, flooded and part of Ikoyi were also submerged by flood impeding human and vehicular movements.

A young man, Smith Eze, told Sunday Tribune that the situation was worrisome.

“I was just coming from Ajah side and you can see Lekki as well. Everywhere has been flooded, if you are able to enter  Lekki Peninsula, you would see what I am talking about,” he said.

He added that “The situation affected many streets in the highbrow area. Some cars broke down, while those walking on the water-logged streets found it difficult to move.”

Residents have since taken to social media to share their plight. While some mocked them, others expressed their sympathy.
