Thousands stranded, groan as gridlock surfaces on Abuja-Keffi Road
The standstill is said to have arisen due to the inability of both private and passenger vehicles to access Abuja.
At the time of this report, the long queues of vehicles that started at the AYA side of Abuja road stretched to Mararaba in Nasarawa State.
There has been no official statement on the sudden appearance of the gridlock but officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps were seen heading for Abuja axis to identify and profer remedy for the standstill.
Expectedly, commercial motorcycle operators, popularity known as Okada are capitalising on the traffic jam to make brisk businesses.
A drop from Nyanya, which used to cost N200, has now attracted N500 where available.
Several workers who could no longer bear the pains having stood for more than four hours by the roadsides are returning home.
