River shockingly turns to dry land at Kara Market in Lagos (photos)

A part of the popular Ogun River which flows under the Kara Bridge around Ojodu Berger area of Lagos State suddenly and shockingly turned dry today June 18th.

Residents of the area say they woke up this morning to see the river which served as one of their means of transportation where canoes were used to reach the dense waters, totally dry and it wasn't like that the day before. The surface of the water had become firm and people can now stand on the portion of the river. What do you guys think happened? More photos after the cut...
