The fence of the palace of Elefire of Efire, Oba Musa Adeniyi and scores of houses were on Friday, 11th July, 2015 destroyed by early morning rainstorm at Ogun Waterside Local Government Area of Ogun state.
The rainstorm which lasted about five hours destroyed properties worth millions of naira.
Shattered roofs, smashed ceilings and collapsed concrete structures were seen in most parts of Lugade, Ita Ogun, Ita Otu and Itatikelu as residents of the affected areas wear a sorrowful look as a result of the loss which many described as unquantifiable.
Roofs of about 12 houses in Ibiade were blown off while many movable kiosks in the area were also destroyed.
One of the victims, Adekoya, who spoke on the incident said he was not at home when the incident happened but was called on phone and on getting home he discovered that his room had collapsed and all his properties soaked with water.
He called on the government to come to their aid as the news is not a good one.
