Security agents and traffic officials on Saturday battled to clear congestion at Onitsha Bridgehead and Gwagwalada on Abuja-Lokoja Expressway on Saturday.
For the second day running, motorists groaned for hours at the Asaba and Onitsha ends of the River Niger bridge linking Delta and Anambra states, as hundreds of travellers headed home for the Christmas and New Year holidays.
Meanwhile, soldiers, policemen and the Federal Road Safety Commission managed to clear long lines of traffic at Gwagwalada, caused by a broken truck.
They had a hectic time clearing the vital road linking Abuja with the South-South and Kogi State, as travellers headed to their hometowns for the Yuletide.
