Many, including mother and child, are feared missing and billions of naira worth of properties destroyed by ravaging massive flood in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, and its environs following about two hours torrential rain that pounded the city on Friday evening.
Scores of residents were sacked from their homes and shops when their apartments were either submerged or brought down by the flood. Household items, goods, and other valuables were destroyed.
In Omolasho and Kuto, major commercial areas of Abeokuta, goods, and structures worth millions of naira were swept away and emptied into a canal by the Isabo state High court area where the flood was most violent and fiercest.
 



Dozens of vehicles packed by the roadsides were also submerged with some of them dragged into gullies and pits.
The Nation sighted some youths battling to dig up one Toyota car buried near the Holy Cross Hospital, Ijaye, Abeokuta, by the devastating flood.
Areas most hard hit are Ijaye, Omolasho, Kuto,  Isale Egbein and Ijeja where the flood damaged the bridge linking Ijeja and other parts of the state capital.
The Archdiocesan Headquarters of the Celestial Church of Christ, Ijaye, Abeokuta was also severely hit and dozens of home within the area affected as some of the residential buildings either collapsed, tilt or got weakened as to make them unsafe for habitation.
The rain which started around 4:30 pm yesterday caught Abeokuta residents unaware, brought in in its trail flood and devastation.
Thousands were locked down for hours following the massive flood that took over all access roads.
In Ago Ijesha area, unauthorized persons, at different times, a mother and her toddler – daughter were swept away by the flood during the torrential rain.
