Two motorcyclists were reportedly killed, and many houses destroyed during a downpour that lasted many hours on Tuesday in Ibadan.
Eyewitnesses said the flood was like that of 2011 but for the casualty figure.
The 2011 incident claimed more lives.
A resident, who simply identified himself as Abimbola, said some residents were trapped as raging torrents entered people’s homes.
He said, “The rain started as if it would not be serious until it became heavier and continued for many hours.
“There are no casualties here yet, but we don’t know what will happen when the water recedes.
“All of our property including electrical appliances, furniture, food items, clothes, were swept away.”
“We saw some animals floating on water. We heard also that some parts of Ososami and other areas were submerged.”
