Avoid Kogi highway, FRSC warns motorists

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has called on motorists to avoid travelling to and from the South-west via the Kabba-Omuo-Ekiti federal highway.
This was contained in a statement released on Sunday by Bisi Kazeem, corps public education officer (CPEO).

According to Kazeem, the decision is due to a failed portion of the road at Iyamoye area of Kogi state.

Kazeem said the development had affected free flow of traffic on the affected portion of the highway.

“In view of the foregoing, motorists, travellers, and the general public are hereby advised to use alternative route from Ekiti which is Ikare/Ayerel/Kabba/Lokoja,” he said.

“And another alternative route from Lokoja is Kabba/Aiyere/Ikate/Akoko, Lokoja/Kabba/Egbe/Omuaran/Ogidi/Ikare alternative route to or from South Westk.

“The Federal Ministry of Works and housing is already activating appropriate action to ameliorate the situation.

“FRSC solicits maximum cooperation of the motoring public on this development. The Corps will also continue to update the public periodically on further developments.”

Recall that the FRSC had in September admonished motorists to avoid the same highway as a result of a failed section of the road at Ikoyi, in Iyara LGA of Kogi state.

Meanwhile, in August, the FRSC had asked motorists to avoid the Lokoja-Kabba highway, also in Kogi state.
