PHOTOS: Water Crisis Strikes Abeokuta, Residents Forced to Drink from a Broken Pipe Inside a Drainage Channel
The residents of Panseke, in the capital city of Ogun State, Abeokuta, are forced to take water for their domestic use from a broken pipe in a drainage channel.
The residents also complained to Saharareporters on the lack of potable water in the vicinity, stating that majority of them source of water from traditional wells, which have dried up since last year.
However, they said respite came their way recently from a broken pipe leaking in the gutter which appears cleaner and manageable.
Some students of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), who reside in Oluwo area of the community, disclosed that they are also faced with water crisis and only manage what they scoop from their wells, which are now drying up due to the dry season.
