Ibrahim Farinloye, Territorial Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in the South West, confirmed the situation.

He advised residents of Command Area to take alternative routes, when going out, by avoiding Command and the near areas as flood has overrun the bridge in the neighbourhood.

“NEMA, fire service and police are working to get trapped people out of the area,” he added.
