Forçados River

The Forçados River is a channel in the Niger Delta, in southern Nigeria. It flows for approximately 198 kilometres (123 mi) and meets the sea at the Bight of Benin in Delta State. It is an important channel for small ships. The Forçados River splits from the Niger River at the same point as the Nun River.

People have been fishing on this river for years and then came to a dock on the Niger River to sell/store and use for personal consumption.

In the early years of the 20th century, Forçados was a destination port for steamers from England until the river silted up.
