Flood Ravages Popular Trademore Estate In Abuja

An early Monday morning downpour led to severe flooding, submerging the popular Trademore Estate in the Lugbe area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

Unconfirmed reports said that two people were swept away by the flood.

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.

She said while screaming in the video: “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.

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.”
