Flood renders scores homeless in Ibadan


FOR the second time in three weeks, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, experienced another frightening flooding yesterday, after a downpour which rendered scores homeless.

Though no fatality was recorded, the flooding that was occasioned by a four-hour rain also destroyed some property.

Three weeks ago, the city recorded flooding which equally destroyed some properties.

Areas affected by yesterday’s flooding included Apata, Gbekuba, Odo-Ona, Akala Way and Arapaja.

At Gbekuba, a resident, Mr. Azeez Olanrewaju, said the erosion was so much that people living close to river banks had to abandon their homes to avoid being caught unawares.

Also, at Odo Ona, a resident, Biola Ajayi, said they live in great fear whenever it rains.

Ajayi said:

“As the rain began this morning (yesterday) and it began to increase, we had to run out of the house because we did not know what could happen.”
