In most areas of Lagos, residents have experienced a heavy downpour of rain in four days within January 20th to January 30th, 2019. And the heavy downpour has raised commotion within metropolis.

Speaking with our correspondent in the meantime, was a resident at Ijagemo, in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos.

The resident who claimed to be a graduate narrates how Ijagemo has always experienced flood in every rainy season of the year.

“I am 23 years old and I am a year older than my father’s house. Ever since I grew up, I have always known Ijagemo road to be bad.”

It is either the problem of water during rainy season or the problem of sand by the harmattan period, as both water and sand happens to always be much than necessary on the road.” he said

He explained further that the landlord association has on many occasion contributed to buy granite to fill the road.

“I can’t even remember the number of times I have seen landlord’s receipt in my dad’s library and whenever I asked him what it is meant for, he says it is for road construction.” he disclosed

The resident later urged the federal government to come to their aid as they had all thought the government would assist after the coming of military forces in the last four years but that their cry seems to fall on deaf ears.
