The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has warned motorists, especially those travelling through the Kabba-Omuo-Ekiti Federal Highway to be wary of a failed section of the road at Iyamoye.
In a traffic alert issued, on Sunday evening, by Corps Public Education Officer of the FRSC, Assistant Corps Marshal Bisi Kazeem, he urged those travelling in that axis to seek alternative routes.
ACI Kazeem’s statement read thus, “Members of the motoring public and general commuters travelling from or to South West, through Kabba- Omuo Ekiti Federal Highway are hereby notified of a failed section of the road at Iyamoye.
“This development has led to lack of free flow of traffic at the said portion of the road.
“In view of the foregoing, motorists, travelers, and the general public are hereby advised to use 1. Alternative route from Ekiti is Ikare/Ayerel/Kabba/Lokoja.
2. Alternative route from Lokoja is Kabba/Aiyere/Ikare/Akoko
3. Lokoja/Kabba/Egbe/Omuaran/Ogidi/Ikare as alternative route to or from South West. The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing is already activating appropriate action to ameliorate the situation.
“The Federal Road Safety Corps solicits maximum cooperation of the motoring public on this development. The Corps will also continue to update the public periodically on further developments.”
He, however, said that operatives of FRSC were on ground controlling traffic in the failed section.
