The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) has warned that there will be poor visibility over the country in the next 24 hours due to thick dust in the atmosphere.
According to NiMet a fresh dust had been observed over western Chad and south eastern Niger republic as at 1100 LT, which would further deteriorate the already poor horizontal visibility across the country.
Also most parts of Northern cities were likely to experience a further reduction in horizontal visibility to less than 1000m in about five hours from the time of alart.
Katsina, Maiduguri, Kano, Damaturu, Nguru and Gombe would mostly be affected by the poor visibility. While a further reduction in visibility is expected over parts of the central cities of Abuja, Minna, Bida, Lafia, Jos, Makurdi, in moderate dust haze conditions.
“A visibility range between two to five kilometres while Lokoja is anticipated to have visibility less than or equal to 1000m in the next 12 hours from the time of alart.
“Southern cities including Owerri, Enugu, Asaba, Ibadan, Lagos, Akure, Owerri and Port Harcourt are also expected to still be under the influence of moderate dust haze in the next 24 hours.
“Thick dust visibility less than 1000m is observed over Maiduguri, Kano, Potiskum and Yelwa,’’ NiMet said.
