Many residents have taken to social media to complain on the damage caused by heavy rainfall in Lagos State today, May 20, 2019.

The state is a familiar mess during rainy seasons as many parts are submerged in flood due to a terrible drainage system, causing difficulty for motorists and residents of different parts of the state.

The same was the story when it rained in the early hours of Monday, leading many to take to social media to voice their displeasure with the persistent problem.

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) reported earlier in the day on the collapse of two buildings, one in Abule Egba and the other near Ladipo Bus Stop in Oshodi.

“A building consisting of 4 rooms built on the fence of house 13 Erinjiyan Drive off Alhaja Mulika street had collapsed due to heavy rain,” the agency disclosed.

And also The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) reported on flash floods immediately after the rain in Ijaiye inward Meiran.

The rainfall also fell some trees in the state with some of them falling on the road and worsening the traffic problem. LASTMA officers had to cordon off a road on Alfred-Rewane to remove a tree that had fallen on a car, The Pulse reports.

Some resident of Badagry also took to the Express road in protest on the bad state of the road leading out of the country to Benin Republic.

Residents of the state however took to Twitter to complain about the problem with some calling on incoming governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to make it a priority after he’s sworn in next week.

This is getting serious. Rainy season has not started fully yet everywhere is flooded. The state government needs to plan a long term solution for this, too bad.

Don't waste your curses. They are spam robots.

Meanwhile, people keep dumping trash in the water channels and gutters, so when stiff like this happens I am not surprised. Lagosians like suffering and are resistant to orderliness
