Causes of Flood in Kogi state
The flood in Lokoja, Ibaji, Koto, Idah and other parts of Kogi State is caused by the heavy rainfall, and the release of water from Ladgo dam in Cameroon which caused the river Niger and Benue to overflow. Lokoja sits at the confluence of the Niger and Benue which makes it prone to flood.
Residents of Lokoja are adviced to move to higher grounds to avoid future disaster.
