The gridlock along the Kaduna -Abuja highway has been cleared, Kaduna state government has said.
The state commissioner for internal security Samuel Aruwan disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
He said, “After days of painstaking work between the Kaduna State Government, Julius Berger Nigeria PLC, the Military and other relevant agencies, the gridlock at the Katari axis of the Kaduna-Abuja Road has been resolved.
“There is now free flow of traffic at Kilometer 75 of the highway, which was the epicenter of the gridlock, after a heavy duty vehicle broke down at the location, causing a blockage.”
Mr Aruwan “once again regrets the protracted situation which placed citizens in an undesirable state of severe hardship for many days.”
He thanked security agencies that worked round the clock to ensure continuous security and safety of the citizens.
