The Uselu axis of the Benin-Lagos expressway, Benin city was today flooded after the rains. Many motorists had to swim through the flood while some others were stranded. The pics below were taken opposite the traditional ground, Uselu.
Most parts of the walkway and service lanes have been destroyed due to consistent flooding and erosion. While many houses lining the road are already on the verge of collapse.
It could be recalled that a young girl was snatched from her mother grasp along this same road while trying to cross over it some weeks back. Up to this day her corpse is yet to be found.
Government attention is urgently needed to avoid further destruction of the road and ultimately the loss of human lives.
