The alternative roads, according to him, should be adhered to pending the time the water level will recede.

 
Nigerians have been warned by the Federal Government to avoid travelling to the North from the Southern and Eastern parts of the country through the Lokoja-Abuja dual carriageway in Kogi state.
 
The warning was given by the Federal Controller of Works in Kogi State, Engr Jimoh Kajogbola in a statement in Lokoja.
 
He admonished motorists to opt for alternative routes.
 
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.”
 
The alternative roads, according to him, should be adhered to pending the time the water level will recede.
 
Kajogbola said 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 Abuja-Lafia-Makurdi-Otukpa road or Abuja-Bida-Mokwa-Jebba road pending the time that the water will subside at Koton-Karfe.
