Residents of Surulere in Lagos woke up to their streets heavily littered with waste especially styrofoam takeaway packs after the heavy rains on Saturday night, June 6th.
They took to social media to raise an alarm of their community being overtaken by loads of refuse.
While some Twitter users called out the Lagos state government over alleged poor drainage and poor waste disposal system in the community, others lashed out at residents of the area for turning all the drainage systems to dustbins.
