    After The Floods at Lokoja Nigeria

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter toytoks2000 was passing through Lokoja, the capital of Nigeria's central Kogi state, when he captured these images of what appears to be slowly receding flooding, and fishermen tentatively beginning to go back out into the water. Lokoja is a confluence city where the country's Niger and Benue rivers meet. "The waters are receding slowly but [the fishermen] have been warned not to go back as water is expected to be released from some dams in Cameroon and Guinea," he said. "However, they are fishermen, so they don't want to be far from the source of their livelihoods."
