Sen Smart Adeyemi, Other Road Users Stranded As Flood Takes Over Parts Of Abuja-Lokoja-Okene  Highway. 

Abuja-Lokoja-Okene Highway between Kwali and Abaji became flooded after about 4hrs of heavy downpour. 

Vehicles from Abuja could not proceed to Lokoja, Okene and the Southern parts while about three buses are reported to have been swept off the highway with passengers trapped. 

Among those stranded was Senator of Kogi West District Smart Adeyemi.

Adeyemi said: “The flood was devastating. 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.”

Another passenger, Hadiza Abdulkareem said: “We have waited for 45 minutes for the flood to subside.

“I think the relevant agencies should sustain the warning enlightenment to travellers in this rainy season.”
