An early morning downpour on Wednesday and Thursday in Lagos residents of Anifowose Community, Ikeja, Agege, and most parts of Lekki stranded as roads and houses were flooded.
Most Lagosians in the affected areas had to deal with struggling to go to work amid traffic caused by the floods.
Many transporters also abandoned their vehicles to sit at home until the rains stop to avoid vehicle breakdown.
