An Abuja resident has died after a heavy flood swept him away on Wednesday. His corpse was later found after the flood subsided.
In a tragic video which captured the man when the flood swept him, he was seen wading through the brownish flood water that extended above his waist. He appeared to miss his step and then struggled to regain his balance before the heavy current was swept him away in seconds while screaming for help.
The incident happened Wednesday in Trademore Estate, Lugbe Abuja but his corpse was recovered on Thursday morning
Eyewitnesses reportedly claim he had been warned not to go in the water but he didn’t listen. He was also reportedly drunk at the time he ventured into the flooded street.
A voice in the video was heard saying, “That man done go. I dey warn am, I dey warn am.”
