Veteran Nollywood actor, Pa James, was recently the subject of discussion on social media after his home was sacked by flood for the umpteenth time.
The film star’s residence which is located in Oke Isagun community of Oke Odo LGA in Lagos state had been sacked by flood and from photos shared on social media, Pa James’ house looked like a small river.
Well-meaning Nigerians and colleagues had taken to social media to call for help on the actor’s behalf.

Around this time last year, Pa James son, Samuel Ajirebi, had taken to social media to call on the government to look into the incessant flooding of his father’s house.
Samuel explained that 2019 would make it the 10th time his father’s residence was overrun with flood due to heavy rainfalls.
In the Instagram post, he wrote:
“This year makes it ten years of repeated and consistent occurrence of this with severe damages done annually to properties, at times leading to temporary displacement! Letters have been written, TV appearances made, press releases written, still no significant step taken by the government to channel the overrunning canal.
“This is not a sympathy plea for anything, but a call to the state and local government authorities of Lagos ( @akinwunmiambode and @jidesanwoolu ) Oke Odo LGA respectively to please wake up to your responsibility and stop making citizens suffer in neglect! We need governmental intervention in Oke Isagun Community of Oke Odo LGA! We lose properties! We lose rest whenever we see rain signs! Tonight is going to be a partial prayer moment for families, because it must not rain tonight… No house for us to sleep in anymore!
“This is sad and heartbreaking!”
