Flood on Abuja-Lokoja high way, caused by a four-hour heavy downpour today, August 7, turned back a lot of passengers, including the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Smart Adeyemi.
Eye witness account said that three buses were swept off the highway in the aftermath of the heavy rainfall which made it impossible for many vehicles from Abuja to proceed to Lokoja, Okene, and the Southern parts.
Speaking on the development, Senator Adeyemi described the flood as devastating, saying: “I witnessed how some vehicles were swept away from the highway.
“I and many travellers can no longer continue with our journey. We have become stranded. There is no other way than to turn back to Abuja.”
