The non-stop rain over the last couple of days has left parts of Lagos Island like Lekki and Victoria Island a really bad mess.
With the poor drainage system on the island, it’s literally become flooded, with photos constantly shared on social media.
And of course, those who stay on the mainland and other parts of Nigeria have been coming out with them memes. (Inferiority complex? No?)
Anyways, check them out below!

To all those living in Lekki and on the Lagos Island, please stay safe. And hopefully the government does something about this soon.
