Flood has destroyed properties worth millions of naira in some communities in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

The destruction happened after consistent rainfall, leaving residents of Gbodofon, Awosuru, Baruwa, Oke Arungbo, Ibu-Amo and many other communities counting their losses.

Some residents said there was upsurge in River Osun and the overflow wreaked havoc and many people were displaced.

A mechanic, Mr Kamoru Omolade, said the flood washed away vehicle spare parts worth N750,000 from his workshop and many vehicles covered by the flood were damaged.

Omolade said, “The flood covered me up to my chest while I was trying to rescue some engines that customers brought to me for repair.”

At Onirodunu, Baruwa area, the flood entered living apartments, which caused people living in the area to leave their homes.

A resident, Alhaj Moshood Adigun, wondered how the flood affected his house as it was not close to the river.

Another resident, who simply identified herself as Mummy Precious, appealed to the state government to provide succour for people affected by the flood.
