The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has provided succour to victims of the rainstorm that affected four communities at Badagry in May 2020, and resulted in the loss of many buildings and other personal belongings of residents. 

Speaking during the presentation of the cash support to 31 families affected by the rainstorm, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said the presentation was a fulfilment of the promise made by the State government to compensate victims of the unfortunate incident. 

Sanwo-Olu, represented at the event by the SA on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. Solomon Bonu, implored the beneficiaries not to divert the money to other projects, marry new wives or host parties, insisting that the money should be utilised to rebuild their damaged houses. 

He said the present administration deemed it fit to compensate the victims in the four affected communities namely, Iragon, Iragonthogli, Iragbo and Kemu, in order to alleviate their suffering and reduce the negative impact of the incident on the families. 

Reiterating that the present administration has great plans for the division, the Governor disclosed that five major projects had been approved for the area. 

The Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, said that in compliance with COVID-19 protocols the victims being supported by the State government would get the palliatives in two batches.
