She said: “I was on my way to work and by the time I got to Akilo road around Guinness, Ikeja, Lagos, the flood was so much but I was determined to get to work on time. Alongside other people we decided to walk in the middle on the road so as to avoid the wide drainage by the side of the road. I lost balance along the way as the water was reaching my knee and trailers were pushing the water towards us but was rescued by the two guys walking ahead and behind me. I’m still in shock.”
