The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kwara has asked motorists to keep calm over the collapse of Okolowo Bridge linking Kwara to Oyo State.

The Corps, in a statement on Friday, said it will make presentations to the relevant authorities for prompt action.

The Kwara Sector Commander, Fredrick Ogidan, pleaded with residents and members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) to be patient over the matter.

“The command’s attention was drawn to the collapsed bridge and we have made on the spot assessment of the collapse and damage,” Mr Ogidan explained. “We assure residents and the union that brought the information to us, the NURTW, that we will inform the appropriate agencies; all we ask for is patience from the general motoring public.”

According to the statement, the NURTW had earlier drawn the attention of the command to a collapsed bridge at a location called Okolowo junction in Ilorin.
