Lagos Govt. issues flood alert

Warns residents of Lekki, V/I, Ikoyi

The Lagos State government has issued a fresh flood advisory to residents of Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lekki and the coastal areas of Badagry and Epe to be cautious of the backflow of flood which is due to the high tide in the Lagos lagoon.

Stating this, the commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, made this known in an issued statement on Monday.

Bello said, “The high tide of the Lagos lagoon has made it difficult for storm run-off from the various channels to discharge effectively into the lagoon which may cause stagnation into the streets and major roads until the level of the lagoon subsides to allow for a discharge of the channels.
