The early morning downpour which caused heavy flood on Tuesday in Lagos, overran the Command Bridge in Ipaja, Alimosho Local Government Area.

Consequently, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) advised residents of Command area to take alternative routes.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, the Territorial Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the flood occurred as a result of 60 canals emptying water into the Command channel where the bridge was located.

Farinloyes said the channel was originally built to accommodate 16 canals emptying water into it.

He added that NEMA, the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service and the Police were on ground working to get trapped people out of the area. (
