The Lokoja-Ajaokuta road, a major artery linking the north and the South-East and some parts of the South-South regions of the country, has been cut off by flash floods from River Niger.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) visited the flooded parts of Lokoja on Thursday, September 24, 2020, revealed that the flood has covered a section of the road at Ganaja village, making it hard for motorists to pass.
