A Nigerian man identified as Stephen Kobams has taken his accommodation frustration to Twitter, saying he is so tired of houses in Surulere.

Posting a photo of a toilet on Twitter, the man said that one would have to climb the staircase to use the bowl.

Stephen's tweet was a quoted response to an earlier post he made where it was disclosed that he may just move to the island.

The shared snap shows two blocks constructed in front of a dirty toilet bowl, glaringly serving as support to whoever wants to use the toilet.

Many people who have had it rough in the state also shared their experiences. Below are some of the reactions:
