PHOTOS: Flood Takes Over Lagos Streets, Houses....Sweeps Away Okada Rider


The downpour on Saturday morning has led to floods in different parts of Lagos State, including expressways, streets, and homes.

Some areas affected include LASU-Igando road, Lagos-Badagry Expressway, and other areas.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has said that a commercial motorcyclist, popularly known as okada rider, was swept away by the flood that took over most part of Lagos on Saturday.

NEMA identified the deceased as Abe and that he was swept away because he allegedly refused to heed warnings from his colleagues not to ride along the Ile Epo Bus stop canals in Alimoso Local Government Area of Lagos State.

The agency’s territorial coordinator, Ibrahim Farinloye, said the flood affected populations at the Papa Ashafa, Fashola communities both in the Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos.

Farinloye said NEMA along with the Disaster Management Unit of the Nigeria Police, a team of the Force from the Dopemu Divisional Police Station, Lagos State Neighbourhood Security Corp in conjunction with the Community Development Associations of Papa Ashafa, Fashola and others helped to distribute emergency relief aid to the flood-impacted communities.
