Again, flood submerges Abuja’s Trademore Estate

The popular Trademore Estate located in Lugbe area of Abuja has again been submerged in flood.

The flood resulted from an early morning downpour in most parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Monday morning.

Politics Nigeria could not independently confirm if any life was lost as a result of the disaster.

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

A video circulated on Monday morning, narrated by an unidentified woman, 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,” the woman cried out.

“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.”

Trademore Estate has continued to suffer flooding every year.

The Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) had announced last year that it would demolish structures on waterways in the estate and other estates across the FCT, but residents rejected the move.
