Owing to the flooding around Kortonkarfi in Lokoja, Kogi State, which has impeded the free flow of traffic on the Lokoja-Abuja Expressway for the last three days, the The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC has diverted traffic on that route.
Assistant Corps Marshal , Corps Public Education Officer, FRSC, Bisi Kazeem in a statement on Friday advised motorist travelling to the South-West region of the country through Lokoja to take the Suleja-Bida-Mokwa road.
Those travelling to the South-South/South-East regions through same town are also advised to go through Nasarawa-Oweto Bridge-Adoka-Otupka axis.
This is due to the fact that the water level may take another two or more days to subside.
