Hundreds of Ore residents, Odigbo Local Council Area of Ondo State, on Thursday, expressed frustration over the incessant flooding of their homes.

The residents, who stormed the residence of the council boss, Magaret Akinsuroju Akinsuroju, to protest the severe flooding, called for immediate action.

The protest came in the wake of heavy rainfall on Wednesday, causing rivers to overflow their banks.

The areas affected by the flooding included Government Field area, Harrison Area, Di Mango, among others.

The Ore axis of the Lagos-Benin highway was also heavily flooded, leading to significant traffic congestion and forcing motorists to endure lengthy delays.

While responding to their grievances, Akinsuroju assured the residents that she had already informed the Acting Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa about the incident.

She further acknowledged that part of the problem stemmed from residents constructing buildings in waterways and indiscriminately dumping refuse in water channels.
