The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has asked motorists to avoid Kabba-Omuo-Ekiti federal highway.
Motorists use the federal road to travel to and fro the South-west region of the country.
Bisi Kazeem, FRSC Public Education Officer (PEO), in a statement on Sunday, said the decision is due to a failed portion of the road at Iyamoye area of Kogi State.
Kazeem said the development has 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/Ikare/Akoko, Lokoja/Kabba/Egbe/Omuaran/Ogidi/Ikare alternative route to or from South West.
“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.”
Last month, the FRSC had also advised motorists to avoid the same highway as a result of a failed section of the road at Ikoyi, in Iyara Local Government Area of Kogi.
