Torrential rain has caused flooding in Nigeria. Estimates suggest every state in the country was affected, but Jigawa state particularly experienced heavy flooding.

92 have been people killed and hundreds left homeless. The floods have submerged buildings and agriculture, and there are concerns that the Niger and Benue Rivers may flood as their water levels rise.
