Passengers plying the Minna-Bida Road stranded as the road collapsed

Passengers plying the Minna-Bida Road on Monday were stranded as the road collapsed on Monday.

The collapse occurred about 23 kilometers from Bida after Sagamio farms.

The collapse came as a result of the heavy downpour occurring across the State in the past one week.

Vehicles leaving Minna could not proceed from their journey while those returning from Ilorin-Mokwa-Jebba axis were also trapped at the spot.

The collapse was manageable as some vehicles tried to pass through but it worsened when a truck tried to pass and became struck with its tyres eating deep into the road.

Some smaller vehicles were able to make a u-turn to take another route to their various destinations but larger vehicles like buses, heavy-duty trucks, trailers and tankers have remained stranded.
