On August 26, torrential rainfall hit Trademoore Estate, Lugbe, Abuja, leading to flooding.

At least one person died after trying to cross through a flooded section of the community, according to the FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The Director-General of FEMA, Idriss Abbas, has lamented that most deaths recorded in the past from flooding the FCT were as a result of non-compliance to instructions from authorities.

Below are pictures from the flooding’s aftermath.
