Elegushi raises alarm over flooded Ibeju Lekki, tasks contractors to save lives

Residents of Bogije Oke-Oyinbo are urgently appealing for government intervention after severe flooding has overwhelmed Road 10, threatening lives and properties.

The flooding, which has heavily impacted all buildings on the street, is attributed to the ongoing state road construction from Kajola to Bogije and Malete.

Hon. Prince Sheriff A. Elegushi, speaking on behalf of the Bogije Ibeju Lekki Local Government stakeholders, has called for immediate action to channel the floodwaters into the Lagoon.

“The contractor needs to channel the flood into the Lagoon to save lives and properties across the communities,” said Elegushi.

The flooding has left the street heavily submerged, making it difficult for residents to navigate and posing significant risks to their homes and businesses.

“All buildings are highly affected, and the street is over-flooded,” Elegushi noted, highlighting the urgent need for a solution.

Residents are appealing to the Lagos State and Local Government to address the issue as a matter of urgency. “We appeal to the State and Local Government to come to our aid as a matter of urgency,” urged Elegushi.

The local community leaders have expressed their gratitude towards the state government officials, hoping their appeal will be heard promptly.

“God bless Mr. Governor and the entire Lagos State Commissioners and Special Advisers. God bless our Council Chairman and the entire honourable members,” Elegushi added in his statement.

The residents of Bogije Oke-Oyinbo are counting on the government to take swift action to mitigate the flooding and protect the community from further damage.

The hope remains that with the concerted efforts of the state and local government, the residents of Bogije Oke-Oyinbo will soon see relief and restoration of their affected properties and streets.
