…as commuters spend 12 hours on the road
Officials of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Saturday, had an excruciating experience trying to control an unprecedented traffic gridlock along Nyanya-Kugbo- Aya Road.
The over 12 hours gridlock was said to have been caused by a fallen heavy duty trailer carrying logs of wood, around the Kugbo axis. Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to FCT Minister, Ikharo Attah said it took the intervention of a combined team of the Military, Police, and other agencies to abate the situation.
Attah who lamented that the gridlock lasted more than expected due to the attitude of some undisciplined uniform officers, also urged residents and commuters to always cooperate with relevant security agencies in any emergency situations.
He confirmed that irrespective of the horrible experience, the gridlock was finally cleared around 4:50am.
He said: “A trailer carrying Timber had failed break and completely blocked the road with the timbers and the body of the truck, I never thought it would be an extremely hectic day because it was a weekend.
“But this was not the case. Many thanks to the FRSC Nyanya unit Commander, DPO Karu Division and DRTS officials who opened for use the service lane that is still under construction.”
