Kwara Gov consoles victims of rainstorm, flooding
Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State on Friday described Thursday night’s rainstorm and flooding incidents in some parts of the state as unfortunate.
Reacting to the incidents, Governor Abdulrazaq sympathised with residents of Ilorin and some communities in the state.
DAILY POST reports that two people escaped death in Ilorin, the state capital, by the whiskers when a billboard and roofing sheets blown by storm fell on their Toyota Camry car.
The incident occurred around the state fire service on Unity Road at about 4pm, while they were driving in the rain.
Although they were unhurt, the incident inflicted extensive damage on their car.
A government statement in Ilorin on Friday by his spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye, said “the Governor is sad about the havocs that the rainstorm wreaked on public and private properties, especially in Ilorin metropolis, Oke Ero, and some other areas.
“The Governor is aware of and commends the ongoing efforts of relevant government agencies to evacuate the many fallen signposts and clear the highways for free movement of traffic.”
The statement further said, “while the state government will collaborate with the Federal Government to continually tackle the question of flooding, the government appeals to members of the public to avoid littering the drainages or blocking free flow of water.”
