FG says recent floods in Nigeria not caused by opening of Lagdo Dam

The Federal Government through the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA) says that the floods being experienced in Nigeria are not due to the opening of the Lagdo Dam in Cameroon.

This was made known by the Director General of NIHSA, Clement Nze, during a press briefing on Tuesday at the agency’s office in Abuja.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs East and Central African Division, Abuja, had a few days ago, announced that the ministry received a note from Cameroon informing them that it is going to release water from Lagdo Dam into Benue River.
