WATCH: Two Persons Reportedly Missing As Flood Takes Over Abuja Estate

Popular Trademore Estate in the Lugbe area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja was to on Monday, June 24, submerged in flood following a heavy downpour.  

Unconfirmed reports said that two people were swept away by the flood.

The estate’s gate area was particularly affected, with the prolonged rain rendering hundreds homeless and causing extensive property damage.

A video which circulated on Monday morning, showed the estate nearly completely submerged, with some properties seen outside homes in the rain.

“This is Trademore Estate, federal government we are pleading, two persons just died now, the water took them away. Two persons swept away by this water, please we are begging. FCT minister come and do something, we are appealing. See the Police Station is gone. These are people’s residences, and water is everywhere. Minister of FCT, Honourable Wike, please come to Trademore Estate, people are dying. Two people just died this morning, what a pity.”

Recall that the flooding in the estate has been a perennial occurrence every rainy season, which made the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) promise to tackle it, but nothing has been done.
