The heavy downpour that started in the afternoon hours to evening time in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state have flooded some communities. “I am here in front of Old Ife road… the flood has covered all vehicles , the flood has made a wreck of the entire city. These are cars and you can see by proxy down there. I am recording this video for a state record.an eyewitness said in one of the videos.
In another video footage of havoc wrecked by the flood at Olodo area of the city, an eyewitness, who talked hastily, called for the immediate intervention of the authorities because the flood had “taken over a house located after the Olodo bridge enroute Iwo road” noting that there are people inside the house at the moment of recording the video.
It is then very obvious that, the government is having issues with environmental management including drainage and adequate dredging and maintenance of such linkages.
