The rain, which spread to most part of Ilorin metropolis, also extended to other towns in the state like Offa, Omupo, Ajase-Ipo, Omu-Aran, Otte among others.

The rainfall started with windy atmosphere, which was cold and changed the hot and unfriendly weather being experienced by residents before the rain.
