PHOTONEWS: Lokoja-Abuja Road Cut Off By The Great Flood That Divided Nigeria
A series of photos released by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) shows the seriousness of flooding that devastated various parts of Nigeria during this raining season. Some 2 million Nigerians have been displaced from their homes while some have died or gone missing as a result of the ravaging flood.
The most striking aspect of the flooding happened on the ever-busy Abuja-Lokoja highway where for close to one week now, the key highway linking northern Nigeria to the rest of the south, generally the Southwest has been submerged under water causing traffic delays that have lasted days.
