Today July 8, 2017 the Lekki and Victoria Island areas of Lagos is on flood lockdown due to the overnight torrential rains, which started at roughly 11pm last night and is still raining heavily as I put out this report.
Areas from Lekki Phase 1 all the way down to the Lekki Free Trade Zone have been partially submerged by flood waters. Thesituatio has caused people to be stranded, broken down cars and much more havoc.
