Nigerian Actor Ajirebi’s House Destroyed By Flood After Heavy Rainfall In Lagos

Veteran Nollywood actor Pa Ajirebi is not happy at the moment.

According to his son, Samuel,  their house got flooded on Sunday following an heavy downpour in Lagos.

He added that 2019 makes the 10 year of consistent damages to the properties on their street, making life difficult for residence.

He blamed the canal behind their street which overflows whenever there is heavy downpour.

He added that several appeals have been made to the authorities but none have yielded positive response.

Here is how he broke the sad story on Instagram yesterday.

S E R I O U S L Y S A D RIGHT NOW ❗️❗️❗️ I get to think at times that "are we sure we have a government in this country?". Look at what I met on going to visit my family today. A flooded house due to the the overflowing canal behind our street. To make matters worse, noone was at home save my dad, so the oldman and I had to be saving properties and scooping water out of the house! This year makes it ten years of repeated and consistent occirence of this with severe damages done annually to properties, at times leading to temporary displacement! Letters have been written, tv appearances made, press releases written, still no significant step taken by the government to channel the overrunning Canal…. This is not a sympathy plea for anything, but a call to The state and local government authorities of Lagos ( @akinwunmiambode and @jidesanwoolu ) Oke Odo LGA respectively to please wake up to your responsibility and stop making citizens suffer in neglect! We need Governmental intervention in Oke Isagun Community of Oke Odo LGA! We lose properties! We lose rest whenever we see rain signs! Tonight is going to be a partial prayer moment for families, because it must not rain tonight…. No house for us to sleep in anymore! This is sad and heartbreaking! @muhammadubuhari @profosinbajo @tundeednut @instablog9ja @olofofonaija @pulsenigeriatv @pulsenigeria247 @welove2laugh #erosion #flood #messedupgovernance #wakeupnaija #housingproblem #lagosstate #ajirebi

  1. the problem with the over flooding is that even when the drainage system is put in place people throw away their waste into the drainage and when there is little rain there is no where for the water to go hence over flooding.. to be honest we owe it to ourselves to take care of our environment
