Downpour spoils Easter fun in Lagos
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)
