Lagos Records First Rain In 2024

Residents in parts of Lagos State today expressed mixed feelings as the cloud showered down the first rain in 2024.

It was gathered on  Wednesday that some parts of Surulere, Anthony, and Ojuelegba experienced rainfall showers for about 20 minutes in the morning.

Yinka Olufemi, a resident of Surulere, told NAN that she was taking her bath at about 10 a.m. when she heard the sound of rainfall.

Olufemi said that she had to peep through the window to see rainfall showers.

“First, I was excited to see the rain falling at this time of the year; however, my excitement was short-lived when I discovered that the car I spent time washing was messed up by dust that accompanied the rainfall,” Olufemi said.

Another Lagos resident, Uche Okafor, said he was coming to Costain from Anthony Village, a suburb of Lagos when suddenly there were rainfall showers on the Anthony/ Ojuelegba corridor.

Some other residents wished the rain could last longer to ease off the hot weather being experienced as a result of the dry season.
