Residents of Lekki, Victoria Island, Ikoyi, as well as some other parts of Lagos could not go out as they were trapped in their houses as a result of the downpour on Saturday, 12th October 2019. The downpour started as early as 3 am.
The heavy rainfall has left many homes flooded and drainages blocked. Areas mostly hit are Lekki, Victoria Island, Ajah, and all the way to Ibeju-Lekki.
Many people were unable to go about their daily businesses as a result of the downpour. The water went as far as entering people’s houses and destroying furniture.
The residents of these areas have made a cry of help to the government, asking the government to come to their rescue before the situation gets worse.
