EMERGENCY: BENUE - NASARAWA STATES ROAD DIVIDES INTO TWO, LIVES TRANSPORTERS STRANDED, DUE TO GULLY EROSION

EMERGENCY: Passengers and transporters stranded in Kadarko village.

A Federal road which serves as access road from Makurdi to Nasarawa, Abuja and other States collapsed in what appeared to be a Landslide at Yelewata, in Guma Local Government Area of Benue State, following last Night Rainfall.

What is left of this part of Federal Road, is just a tiny portion which I doubt could stand for long, with heavy duty vehicles plying that road.


By Linus Hagher: Latest report says a portion of the Makurdi-Lafia road, around Yelewata in Guma LGA of Benue state has cut into two.

That means no more movement across the area/axis. That road links the South-East to Makurdi-Lafia-Abuja-Kaduna to the North-West. It also links Makurdi-Lafia-Jos to the North-East.


The road can also connect motorists from Lafia-Makurdi to Taraba and other parts of North-East. Now that it has collapsed, there is real trouble.
