For the residents of Oyebanjo Street in Ketu surburb area of Lagos, Saturday’s torrential rainfall can be anything but a blessing as they have lost two underage children to the flood water.
“A joint team of responders comprising Agency responders, LASG Fire Service and LASAMBUS was at the scene.
“The Agency’s tiger team commenced a search and rescue operation along the path of the floodwater.
“Initial observations revealed a sloping topography with a direct channel of drain water into the canal. This has proven to be rather challenging to navigate. Rescue operation remains ongoing,” he said in a statement.
