Commuters plying Gwaram-Basirka road in Jigawa state are advised to take alternate routes to their various destinations.
This development followed a bridge collapse along the way due to a heavy downpour the previous night.
The Jigawa state Police Public Relations Officer, Lawan Shiisu, stated this in a terse statement on Sunday in Dutse.
“On 28/08/2022, as a result of downpour over the night, a culvert under Gwaram/ Basirka Road, precisely at Rabadi village in Gwaram LGA of Jigawa State, has been washed away.
“In view of this, road users should seek alternative or use the diversion created by the authority.”
Residents protested earlier this year on the same road that links that part of Jigawa with its neighbouring Bauchi State when a collapsed bridge led to its closure.
