Nigerian flooding kills five, displaces 73,000

The image shows the extent of the flooding in the city caused by the overflowing River Niger, which is virtually cutting off the Northern part of the country from the South.

A lot of small villages in Lokoja and Kogi will soon be wiped out if nothing is done soon. The flooding has left many dead, thousands homeless, and movement from one place to the other impossible.

The flooding in the country was caused by the release of water from Lagdo dam in neighbouring Cameroon.The flooding left homeless the residents of nine communities, who were being sheltered in 20 temporary camps.

The federal government has contracted three major construction companies to free the submerged Lokoja-Abuja highway from flooding...and NEMA is currently camping thousands of displaced flood victims.
