Social networks have been buzzing all weekend with photos and videos of different parts of the Lekki, Victoria Island and VGC areas of Lagos flooded with rainwater.
Cars swim past roads, people wade around their homes, as they try to get to various locations.
People have blamed the flooding on poor drainage system and illegal structures in the area.
However, some Twitter users say the development of the Eko Atlantic City is a major reason for the flooding.

In no particular order, the cause of today's Lekki flood
1. Bad drainage
2. Eko Atlantic
3. Location below sea levels
4. Your sins

Forget drainage and building codes, the Eko Atlantic dredging is definitely playing a big role in Lagos flooding. It's not rocket science.

The flood in Lekki, VGC and other parts of the Lagos Island is nothing compared to what will happen in Eko Atlantic and Ilubirin in decades.

Eko Atlantic City has played a huge role in the flood scene this rainy season.
Massive environmental impact.

"@ChrisEsene: Everyone seems to be quiet about EKO ATLANTIC which I believe is the cause of the flooding in LEKKI axis and it's environs.
