Residents Panic As Popular Ogun River ‘Turns To Dry Land’ During The Night [VIDEO]

Residents were surprised to wake up and find the water in the popular Ogun river ‘gone’.

A part of the popular Ogun River which flows under the Kara Bridge around Ojodu Berger area of Lagos State has suddenly gone dry.

Unidentified green plants are seen on the river while the water body has given way.

The Kara cattle market community under the bridge along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway has become a Mecca of some sort with residents of the community and passers-by trooping to see the dried section of the river which once provided water for the Kara cattle and ram market.

Traffic in bound Lagos slowed down and Road Safety officials tried to make light the gridlock.


Before the unusual incident, the water body once served as means of transportation for canoe owners but residents say they woke up to see the channel blocked on Saturday morning.

There were initial suspicion that this could be water hyacinth but the surface of what used to be the flowing river had become a firm ground.

Some people were seen testing the solidity of the green that has taken over the waterway by walking across the river and some found it a readymade recreation ground.

Surprisingly, on the other side of the Kara Bridge, the river is seen flowing freely.

Environmentalists have, however, warned that residents keep off the blocked channel for the risks of it opening up unexpectedly and advised relevant authorities find a means of clearing the plants.
