Angry residents around the Dome Parakou Estate Junction blocked the major stretch to protest the poor drainage system constructed some months ago.

According to the residents, the construction was poorly done leaving them vulnerable anytime it rains.

The residents say the poor construction makes their rooms get flooded and properties destroyed anytime there is heavy rainfall.

“It was around 3:30 am that the rain started and the rainwaters came and flooded everywhere. I am a mechanic and I am lucky that there were no cars here when the flood came else it would have spoilt them.

“The contractor working on the bridge is to blame. The bridge is too small, he should have raised it and so we are begging the government to let him raise the bridge just like it has been done at Alajo and Achimota,” a resident, Enoch Sarpei told Channel One TV‘s Samuel Ackom.
