According to a resident of Hi village, the downpour started at 1:00 a.m. on Sunday and trapped several people inside their homes.

The torrential rain caught residents unawares and they had to wait until the morning before scurrying out for safety, but by then it was too late for many.

The Hi local added that houses and cars were submerged while others were swept away by the flood.

“There is a man who stays with his family, and he lost two wives and six children. He was shouting for help but nobody was there to help him at that time. I heard his voice but I could not go out to help him because my house had been submerged and nobody could come to assist him as everybody was running helter-skelter.  He lost his two wives and six children to the flood,” he said.

It was gathered that the only surviving member of the family was the father, who was said to be in critical condition in an area hospital as a result of the injuries he sustained when his building collapsed under pressure.

Properties worth thousands of naira were lost and hundreds of houses were destroyed by the flood.

Residents of the four communities are still counting their losses and devastation they have suffered from the unfortunate incident.

It would be recalled that residents of the Lekki and Victoria Island areas of Lagos were devastated by a flood on Friday that destroyed several houses.

 Former President Goodluck Jonathan has criticised his successor, President Muhammadu Buhari, for planning to extend the military show of force to the South-South and the South-West.

Jonathan said this in a Facebook post on Tuesday which was signed on his behalf by his aide, Reno Omokri.

The former President was emboldened by the statement by Senate President Bukola Saraki who had said the military had no right to declare the Indigenous People of Biafra as a terror group.

He said, “However, we want to advise the Buhari administration, which has announced plans to extend the military show of force to the South-South and the South-West through Operation Crocodile Smile, to tread with caution.

“Nigeria is no longer under military rule. In a democracy, you separate the military from the police. The military is not meant to fight criminality within a nation because they are trained to fight a nation’s external enemies.
