Photos: Residents Stranded As Flood Submerge Many Houses In Lagos Communities




The rain, which started around 6 am on Tuesday in most parts of Lagos State, took over streets and bridges.

Naija News learnt that many residents were reportedly stranded as flood submerged many houses in the Alimosho Local Government Area of the state.

The flood also affected other communities like Abule-Egba, Command, Agege and Egbeda areas of Lagos, causing delays in vehicular movement.

Confirming the situation, the Territorial Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in the South West, Ibrahim Farinloye, said Emergency responders from the state and federal government agencies were on the ground to rescue the trapped victims.

He advised residents of Command Area to take alternative routes when going out by avoiding Command and the nearby areas as the flood has overrun the bridge in the neighbourhood.

“NEMA, fire service and police are working to get trapped people out of the area,” he added.
