Lagos community cries for help, begs state govt as flood threaten lives, properties


The residents of Old-Ewu and Ogunyinka Mafoluku communities in Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area (LGA) of Lagos State have cried to the state government to save them from the flood in the community.
Both vehicular and pedestrian movements have become difficult in the community when it rains, as residents have to battle to cross the heavy flood.
The most affected streets include Ilare Close, Muse Oyinbo Close and Tijani kashimawo Close off 7/8 bus-stop, facing the First bank along Airport Road.
Other affected places are Dominican school, Saint Jude Catholic Church and Domino shop in Mafoluku Oshodi.
The cause of the flood was traced to the bad drainage system in the community and lack of gutters in some streets, hindering the free flow of water.
Affected residents have taken to wearing rain boots when going in and out of their houses to protect themselves.
Speaking for the residents, the Community Development Association (CDA) chairperson, Mrs. Durotola Akinyemi said they need the help of the government to fix the gutters in the community.
