FRSC announces alternative routes through Kabba-Omuo Ekiti highway traffic

The Federal Road Safety Corps has released alternative routes for travellers plying the Kabba- Omuo Ekiti Federal Highway.

This comes as a result of the "lack of free flow of traffic" caused by a failed section of the road at Iyamoye.

According to a statement signed by FRSC's Public Education Officer, Assistant Corps Marshal Bisi Kazeem, at least three alternative routes have been announced to help road users through the traffic.

"Members of the motoring public and general commuters travelling from or to Southwest, through Kabba- Omuo Ekiti Federal Highway are hereby notified of a failed section of the road at Iyamoye.

"In view of the foregoing, motorists, travelers, and the general public are hereby advised to use:

1. Alternative route from Ekiti is Ikare/Ayerel/Kabba/Lokoja.

2. Alternative route from Lokoja is Kabba/Aiyere/Ikare/Akoko

3. Lokoja/Kabba/Egbe/Omuaran/Ogidi/Ikare as alternative route to or from South West.

"The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing is already activating appropriate action to ameliorate the situation.

"The Federal Road Safety Corps solicits maximum cooperation of the motoring public on this development. The Corps will also continue to update the public periodically on further developments," the statement read.

Meanwhile, operatives of FRSC are on ground controlling traffic.
