Three siblings in ALIMOSHO area of Lagos State, were among numerous victims swept away by flood during the unprecedented rainfall in Lagos on Friday, July 8 and Saturday, 9, 2022.
The siblings, 18-year-old MICHAEL, 17-year-old ELIZABETH, and 14 year old TIMI, were reportedly swept away while moving from a room apartment at OKE ISAGUN, AGBADO OKE, OKO Local Council Development Area LCDA, in ALIMOSHO, belonging to Mercy of Christ Apostolic Church situated in an uncompleted building.
Tragedy occurred while trying to relocate from their room to the main church structure when the youngest among them, TIMI, an asthmatic patient, slipped into the flood while trying to climb the plank linking their room to the church building.
In a bid to rescue TIMI, MICHAEL and ELIZABETH were equally swept away.
