A resident disclosed that four dead bodies were recovered on Monday.

The residents disclosed that the estate is usually ravaged by flood during rainy seasons, though the impact of the last Sunday incident was the most disastrous in the last one decade.

The Chairman of the Trademore Estate Residents Association, Adewale Osinaike, said as of 2 p.m. on Monday, they could not ascertain the identities of the casualties.

He said the third body evacuated by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) around 10.a.m. was that of a male who came to buy medicine in the estate.

One of the victims reportedly was in his vehicle after buying drugs from the medicine store.

He was said to have sat in his car hoping that the water level would subside but the water eventually just took him and his new Land Rover.
