Flood takes over Ikorodu road in Lagos following downpour (Photos)
Lagos, Nigeria is still battling flood as pools of water accumulate at various locations on the Ikorodu road.
Cars are seen navigating through the heavily flooded road around Maryland mall, Ikorodu road in Lagos.
The flood makes it difficult for residents around the Ikorodu road and those who pass through the road to connect the Lagos Island and environs.
The flood paralyzed commercial activities within the area and transport fares had gone up due to the jidrainfall and bad roads.
The flood water also swept some debris in its path, causing some drains and drainage channels to become blocked.
Residents and Ikorodu road users are calling on the executive governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to urgently come to their rescue.
Last week Saturday in Lagos, residents of Surulere, and parts of Lekki and Ajah, were faced with untold hardships as some roads and household valuables were submerged in flood. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the torrential rainfall which started around 5:00am in parts of the metropolis left many roads and neighbourhoods flooded.
A social media user, ‘Dayo’ shared pictures of the road this morning, during the downpour.
