Metro Lagos Flood: Govt Tells Lekki Billionaires to Vacate Their Homes



The Lagos state government has advised residents of areas close to water bodies to leave their homes for the time being.

A release by the State Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Samuel Adejare, noted that the rainfall is bound to disrupt normal activities as well as have an untoward effect on landed properties, roads and environment.

“You are implored as much as possible to stay indoors unless it is essential to your safety and livelihood. However we strongly advise those who live in lowland and close to water bodies to move upland”, the statement said.

He added that officers from the Ministry have been deployed to coastal areas and sites that are susceptible to flooding as part of efforts to protect the lives and properties of the citizenry.

The statement also implored Lagosians to call the free toll lines of 112 or 767 for necessary assistance in cases of emergency.
