As the residents of Ajah, Lekki, Victoria Island and Ikoyi in Lagos State continue to count their losses following the Saturday flooding of the areas, the state government has said it is building a retention pond to assist in containing flooding in the state.

The Commissioner for the Environment, Dr Babatunde Adejare, stated this on Monday.

Adejare said a retention pond was currently being built at the Sangotedo area of Lagos State as a form of rainfall harvesting to serve as a reservoir for storm water at the peak of the rainy season for onward release into the Okota River after the rains subsided.
