At least 33 people have been killed by heavy flooding in central Nigeria’s Plateau state, relief official Abdussalam Muhammad has told the BBC.

He said the floods had destroyed homes and washed away roads and bridges, hampering rescue efforts.

More than 12,000 people were affected by the heavy rains in six districts, including Shendam.

Flooding killed more than 39 people last month near the state capital, Jos.
