In Osogbo, the Osun state capital, areas affected include: Oke-Baale, Gbonmi, Isale-Osun, Kelebe, Ofatedo, Igbona, Oke Onitea among others.


The rain, which started at about 7:10 pm continued heavily for over three hours, and uprooted scores of electric poles, throwing many communities into darkness.


Many residents remained stranded after losing the roof of their buildings to rainstorm, while traffic was obstructed by electric poles, which fell across Kajola street, in Balogun-Oke Bale area of the metropolis.


In Osogbo, a victim of the disaster, who is also the head of Kajola community, Chief Tiamiyu Ibraheem said it was a terrible experience for residents of the area.


He said though, no cases of casualty were recorded, he had personally lost close to one million naira worth of property to the incident.


He said they have called the electricity company to come and remove the poles that fell during the downpour.
