Officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), led by the Unit Commander ACC Danladi Samari, were at the scene on Tuesday to assess the damage as movement on the bridge became impossible.

The FRSC has advised that motorists use an alternative route to continue their business while repairs commence on the bridge.
