Highbrow Lekki area of Lagos, known for it’s habitual floods during the rainy season is back to a flooded state again this year 2017. WIth heavy downpour hitting the city of Lagos in the past few days, Lagosians have taken to Twitter to poke fun at Lekki residents.
The tweets stem from the fact that real estate in Lekki is on a very high side and despite paying so much for prime property in the area, living in Lekki can be a nightmare in the rainy season.
