There was heavy rain in Surulere axis of Lagos on Saturday evening and the aftermath was the collection of beautiful garbage in some parts of the area.
Residents of the community affected have howeber taken to social media to raise an alarm of their community being overtaken by loads of refuse after last night’s rain.
While some Twitter users called out the Lagos state government over an alleged poor drainage and poor waste disposal system in the community, others lashed out at residents of the area for turning all the drainage system to dustbin.
See some reactions on social media:
*** This is not sanwolu’s fault. The government is fucked up. But we the people are more fucked up. Sanwolu didn’t drink Pepsi and throw the plastic on the floor. Sanwolu didn’t drink pure water and throw the nylon from his car window. We should be responsible for our actions too.
*** Lagosians should accept part responsibility for the mess they cause too, read up on Japan’s environmental culture , where no public trash Cans and the water in the gutter after a storm is decent enough you could filter and drink
*** Omg i was about to talk about japan. Those people have hygiene in their culture, thier culture means hygiene. But we africans our culture is dirtiness
*** Imagine blaming Sanwoolu for this. I wonder when we’ll ever start telling ourselves the truth
*** When you finished drinking water and dropped the empty bottle in the drainage systems or throug your car window, you want sanwoolu to help you to put it at the appropriate place, abi? Ori yin ti o pe yen, gbogbo wa la jo ma suffer e, set awon educated-illitrate
