Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

A heavy downpour, which started from the early hours of Friday morning in Abuja, has sacked popular Trademore Estate with one person said to be missing.

The rampaging flood has submerged and destroyed property worth hundreds of millions naira.

National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) disclosed to journalists that a Peugeot 406 driver with Registration No. YLA 681 FS, was drowned in the flood.

The driver is said to be missing at Imo Street of the Estate while four other persons were rescued and in stable condition.

Residents of the estate were seen during the downpour, trying to save their lives and salvage their properties after their houses were submerged by the flood.

Stonix News reports that Trademore Estate has, over the years, suffered from series of devastating flooding with lives and properties worth billions of naira lost.

Occupants of the estate, however, heaved a sigh of relief during the 2022 rainy season as they were not affected by flood despite the heavy volume of rainfall recorded in the year.

Thanks to a re-engineering remediation strategy employed by the estate owner which ensured expansion of gutters and demolition of building standing along flood plains.

Meanwhile, first responders such as NEMA, Fire Service, FCT FEMA, Red Cross and Federal Ministry of Environment-Flood department were seen intervening in the wreakage.
