According to him, the usual gridlock usually experienced along the Niger Bridge by motorists during the period was significantly reduced due to massive deployment of officers and men of the corps as well as sister security agencies.

The state Corps Commander said: “All obstructions on the bridge as well as other strategic locations were removed before the celebrations and that helped.”

He urged motorists and other road users in the state to continue to obey traffic rules and regulations so as to ensure safety on the roads in the state.
