With just the beginning of the rainy season in Lagos, major streets and areas around the metropolis have been experiencing floods. One of the worst hit areas is the highbrow areas of Lekki and VGC where the roads have been made impassable due to heavy flooding.
The Fola Osibo road and the Itedo axis around Lekki Phase 1 are one of the most hit, forcing commuters to find alternative routes around the estate.
