The Lagos Water Corporation (LWC) says some residents will experience water supply disruption due to the wreckage of some pipelines by a truck.

In a statement on Thursday, Muminu Badmus, managing director of LWC, said the water pipelines at Ojodu Berger underbridge, a suburb of Lagos, were destroyed by an articulated vehicle.

Badmus said some valuable items of the corporation worth millions were destroyed, adding that residents of Ogudu and its neighbourhood will also suffer water supply disruption.

He said no casualty was recorded during the accident.


“LWC suffers setback as articulated vehicle damaged water pipes and other valuable assets worth millions of naira,” NAN quotes Badmus as saying.

“The incident which happened at Ogudu underbridge recorded no casualty, but damaged water pipe, equipment and other valuable assets supplying water to Ogudu area and its environs of the state.

“This has resulted in heavy wastage of water in the community and beyond, as the entire area is heavily flooded.


“Our experienced and dedicated staff have been alerted and sent to the area for timely arrest of the burst and to restore water supply.

“Also, the driver and his vehicle are currently detained at the police station for necessary investigation on the cause of the accident.”

He assured residents of the affected areas that the corporation is working to provide potable water supply and also avert water wastage.
