A Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede, has expressed worry over the current floods in Lagos and other parts of the country.
Jegede decried the water level below the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State, noting it has risen really high.
The frightened actress wondered why the current increase in the sea level at Third Mainland Bridge wasn’t making the news yet.
Speaking via an Instagram video, the visibly scared movie star also questioned if provisions have been made for the people should the flood eventually hit Lagos, noting how it has continued to ravage many States across the country.
Jegede said: “Guys, good morning.
“I just saw a video of Third Mainland Bridge.
“The water below Third Mainland Bridge has risen really high.
“And I’m still wondering why this is not news.
“And that means there’s flood coming to Lagos.
“So, I need to understand why it’s not news and if there are provisions for people if it comes.
“Because, it’s here.
“You can see it.
“You can see the video.
“And I’m not even trying to scare anybody but I, personally, I am scared.
“You guys please, let me know what you think.”
However, the Lagos State Government has dismissed such fear.
It said the point at which the video referred to by Jegede was shot was at the foot of the bridge in Oworoshoki, adding that the area was low.
According to a statement by the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, it nothing to be worried about.
Bello said the Lagos State Government was prepared for any eventuality, restating the earlier warnings to areas that residents should be conscious about the possibility of flooding.
He said even in such areas, the State was fully prepared.
