FG WARNS MOTORISTS TO AVOID LOKOJA-ABUJA ROAD

The Federal Government has alerted motorists travelling to the North from the Southern and Eastern parts of the country through Kogi State to avoid the Lokoja-Abuja dual carriageway.

The notice was given in a statement by the Federal Controller of Works in Kogi State, Engr Jimoh Kajogbola.

He said, “Due to the flooding in the country, River Niger has overflowed the Lokoja-Abuja dual carriageway at Koton-Karfe and rendered it dangerous to road users.

“Abuja-bound motorists from the South-West are advised to pass through the Ilorin-Mokwa-Bida road, while motorists from the East and South-South are advised to pass through Makurdi-Lafia road.”

Kajogbola said the alternative routes should be followed pending the time the water level will recede.

He added that the advice equally applies to South-South, South-East and South-West bound motorists from the Northern parts of the country.

He urged them to either take the Abuja-Lafia-Makurdi-Otukpa road or Abuja-Bida-Mokwa-Jebba road pending the time that the water will subside at Koton-Karfe.
