Down­pour spoils Easter fun in La­gos

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

A heavy down­pour in La­gos on Sun­day af­ter­noon pre­vented many pic­nick­ers from en­joy­ing their Easter Sun­day fun in var­i­ous cen­tres across La­gos, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) re­ports.

At the Bar Beach, Vic­to­ria Is­land, some cor­re­spon­dents no­ticed that many fam­i­lies that came to catch fun re­mained in­side their ve­hi­cles, while oth­ers scur­ried in search of shel­ter.

Mr Ade­wale Esan, a civil ser­vant, who lives at Onikan, said that he brought his en­tire fam­ily who were vis­it­ing La­gos for the first time, to catch fun at the beach.

“My fam­ily is just vis­it­ing this place for the first time but it is un­for­tu­nate that the heavy rain­fall has de­nied us the op­por­tu­nity to catch fun here. Any­way, we can still come around here to­mor­row, if the weather con­di­tion is con­ducive,” he said.

Mrs Stella Okeke, a food ven­dor at the beach, said that the rain­fall had pre­vented them from mak­ing good sales. (NAN)
