Flood Sweeps Away Two Children, Displaces Families In Lagos

Flooding in Oyebanjo Street, Ketu Lagos took two kids that are yet to be found .

Saturday recorded another tragedy as two yet-to-be-identified children were swept away as people battled flood after a downpour that lasted for hours and submerged many parts of the area.

The incident occurred at about 8:00pm at Oyebanjo Street, Ketu.

While the rain forced some residents to stay indoors, a few others suffered personal tragedies as the downpour and flooding led to destruction of properties.

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency in a situation report on Sunday said a search operation was ongoing to find the missing children.

LASEMA’s Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, noted that it was discovered that the children were missing around 8:00pm on Saturday.

He said, “The agency received distress calls concerning the above. On arrival at the scene of the incident it was discovered that, around 8:00pm, two children had been caught up by floodwater.

“A joint team of responders comprising agency responders, LASG Fire Service and LASAMBUS was at the scene.

“The agency’s tiger team commenced a search and rescue operation along the path of the floodwater.

“Initial observations revealed a sloping topography with a direct channel of drain water into the canal. This has proven to be rather challenging to navigate. Rescue operation remains ongoing.”

Where is the drainage Minister of Lagos - Chief Joe Igbokwe?



I thought Mr Joe Boy had cleared that area?



Why is Lagos still a shiiithole Mr Igbokwe after almost 2 years in post?



Rake those gutters faster - Joe Joe .....



Oya....move your asss to Bourdillon, Igbokwe,

Unless local government area authority and ward council start working through real INEC elected officials this will continue all over Nigeria


You can't control Iyana IBA and it's environs from Alausa you can barely supervise them

Let Landlord Tenant Association, and Community Development Authority fuse into Local Government and Local Councils Authority
