Kaduna govt gives update on highway blockage (See details)

In the early hours of today, a group of drivers blocked the Kaduna-Abuja Road to protest the killing of their colleague by a policeman. The loss of life is deeply regretted. The Kaduna State Government commiserates with the family of the deceased driver and has directedthat the police will thoroughly investigate the incident.

However, grief and a sense of loss do not justify imposing such pains on other citizens as the protesting drivers have done by blocking a very busy public highway. They have left many people stranded for several hours and caused considerable distress.

The Kaduna State Government apologises to road users for the inconveniences caused by the hours-long blockade.

The road has since been opened and the protesting drivers cleared. However, the standstill created by the blockage has resulted in a gridlock that will take hours to clear. The queue of stranded vehicles stretches forseveral kilometres.

Therefore, the state government appeals to all persons traveling on the Kaduna-Abuja highway to patiently cooperate with efforts to clear the gridlock.

Signed
