Tales of woe spread through Lagos and Ogun state communities yesterday as residents bemoaned their losses, aftermath of an all-night downpour. The rain, which lasted about 15 hours, almost sank the two states with many residential areas submerged. The two major roads linking them -Lagos/Abeokuta and Apapa/Oshodi/Tollgate, were not spared as they became flooded, given motorists and commuters hellish experience.
The ugly development was almost a recap of last July’s experience, which led to lost lives and property. In several areas, it has been reported that residents now use canoes to cross.
