ABEOKUTA FLOOD

No fewer than five persons have been feared dead and property worth millions of naira destroyed on Friday night, as flood wreaked havoc in some parts of Abeokuta, Ogun capital.

The downpour, which started around 4pm. and stopped by 9pm, caused river channels in the capital city to overflow their banks resulting in loss of lives and sweeping away of several vehicles.

Areas mostly affected by the incident include Iya Amolaso, Oke Lantoro, Lanfenwa, Totoro, Ijaye, Kuto and Kobiti areas of Abeokuta metropolis.

A correspondent of theĀ News Agency of Nigeria, who moved around the affected areas on Saturday, reports that residents were seen salvaging their personal effects from their homes while some were seen packing out of the affected areas
