The dilapidated bridge on Bida-Minna Road has finally collapsed at Sagamio Farms, about 23 kilometres from Bida and 60 kilometres from Minna thereby cutting off the two major towns in Niger State.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the collapse of the bridge was as a result of the torrential rainfall across the state for the past five days.
It was learned that the water flowing under the bridge is one of the tributaries of River Niger that has overflowed its banks as a result of the rains.A commuter stranded on the road, Mohammed Aliyu told LEADERSHIP that “Most vehicles coming from the Ilorin-Mokwa-Jebba axis and Minna, unaware of the development, are now trapped at the spot. We have been here the whole day.”
