Lagos State Government, on Friday, sympathised with residents adversely affected or displaced by the torrential rainfall in the last few days.
A statement issued by the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Tunji Bello, condoled residents whose property were damaged and those displaced by the flash flood after the rains.
The Commissioner advised residents to be conscious whenever it rains and the high water level in the lagoon locks up the collectors, saying the resultant prevention of easy discharge ultimately leads to backflow of water into the streets.
He urged Lagos residents, especially those staying in low-lying areas, to always relocate from such areas during the rainy season, asserting that this has become imperative to avert any loss of life and property during such heavy downpour going forward.
Bello maintained that the pro-active and on-going cleaning and clearing of all drainage channels in the State also contributed to the ease with which the flash flood disappeared into the channels after the rainfall of Thursday.
He, however, implored Lagosians to desist from dumping refuse in drainage channels or encroaching on the Right of Way of canals, expressing disappointment that several of the canals recently cleared and cleaned up are again being littered by residents.
It will be recalled that with the recent continuous outpour of rain and change in season, Lagos is a point of call as flooding and waste lies in ruin across streets, areas and major roads across the state.
With various videos and pictures surfacing on the internet, the rate at which waters have been overflowing in Lagos cannot be over emphasized.
From the mainland among which include Abule Egba, Agege, Mile 2, Mile 12 and others to the Island among which include Ajah, Lekki and others, it is hard to find a place where the ravaging water didn’t reach.
While many have addressed the issue of flooding in Lagos state as being the result of poor drainage system, others have openly declared that it is because of the dirty citizens who litter their drainage system with dirt.
