15 August 2012At least 33 people died in floods in central Nigeria late last week, officials said on Wednesday, adding that thousands of people were displaced.
The weekend floods rode roughshod over six districts in Plateau state, where about 10,000 people lost their homes.
Rescue teams are still unable to reach many victims because the water has not yet subsided.
Nigeria is currently experiencing its annual rainy season. 35 people were killed in floods in Plateau state three weeks ago.
