More flooding likely in Lagos as sea water level rises, government warns residents

Parts of Lagos State may record more flooding soon owing to the rise of water sea level; the State government has warned residents.

The lagoon is said to be having difficulty  discharging water into the ocean causing backflow into the drainage channels.

But Environment and Water Resources Commissioner Tunji Bello says officials of the state are working on different measures to remove the constriction and blockades ease free easy passage for the resultant flooding.

The state Government is also in talks with the officials of the Ogun Osun River Basin Authority which is releasing water to do so gradually.

He explained that the rise in sea level has contributed to the current flooding in many parts of Ikoyi, V.I, Dolphin and Oworonshoki as the lagoon cannot discharge and is causing backflow into drainage outlets.
