Many Nigerian settlements along the courses of the River Niger and River Benue have experienced flooding as a result of the release of water from the Lagdo Dam in Cameroon. Communities in Benue, Adamawa, Taraba, Anambra, and Nasarawa states have been devastated by the resultant flooding. Many homes have been destroyed in Kogi state (even though the flooding that hit Kogi state (and a few others) did not begin today. The issue first surfaced in the 1980s when the Nigerian government broke a deal it had made with Cameroon – to build a counterpart dam (decidedly 2.5 times Cameroon's effort) that would control the waters when they were released by Cameroon's Lagdo dam.
