Hundreds of motorists heading towards Abuja and other parts of the north are stranded at the Osi-Eruku axis of the Ilorin-Omu-Aran-Kabba federal road due to a gridlock.
The traffic jam, which started as early as 8 a.m. on Sunday, saw many of the motorists sitting inside their vehicles for hours.
The bridge that collapsed at Tatabu village in Niger State last Monday had forced diversion on the road for travellers going to the northern parts of the country.
The bridge, which is situated in Mokwa local government area of the state, was said to have collapsed following a heavy downpour.
The affected vehicles, including commercial buses loaded with passengers were seen struggling to manoeuvre their ways out of the congestion, using the bush paths, especially at the Osi end of the road.Please subscribe to our newsletter
