Commuters were stranded following a serious traffic gridlock after a portion of the Calabar/Ikom highway caved in at Iwuru axis, Biase LGA of Cross River state, cutting the road completely into two. A loaded bus fell into to the sinkhole.
Traffic was brought to a standstill after the incident as motorists devised alternative routes. Number of casualties is yet to be ascertained as at the time of this report.
That axis has remained a nightmare for commuters for years now, as they spend over five to six hours driving to Ikom from Calabar, instead of two or three hours due to bad road.
