Arogbonlo Israel

An early morning downpour on Thursday in Lagos brought untold hardships to residents of Gowon Estate, and parts of Mosan, as some roads and household valuables were submerged in flood.

Vanguard gathered the torrential rainfall which started around 3:30 am in parts of the metropolis left many roads and neighbourhoods flooded.

The flood water also swept some debris in its path , causing some drains and drainage channels to become blocked.

A resident of Gowon Estate who spoke in confidence, told Vanguard that his entire street was flooded , while some residents watched helplessly as their household items floated in water.

“I walked from Mosan bus stop through Bolero car wash and everywhere was absolutely flooded ; people were scooping water.

“We hope our government will work to resolve the drainage problems in this area,’’ he said.
