The area 1 roundabout in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) was on Thursday flooded after a heavy rainfall which began in the early hours of the day.
The rain which started at about 6:00 AM in the city centre lasted for several hours. As at the time of this report, the rainfall had yet to stop.
Our correspondent who was on ground at the roundabout, reports that motorists were forced to use only two out of the four-laned roundabout.
“In fact, only motorists who rode on high cars, jeeps and some daring taxi drivers were bold enough to ride on the second lane where the water level was higher.”
Meanwhile, the flood led to traffic buildup which was slowly leading to a gridlock as the flood seemed to be increasing due to the unabating rainfall.
A motorist who was heard conversing with his passengers attributed the flood to blockage of the drainage channel.
