Traders, farmers stranded as flood submerges Ogbomoso-Igbeti road [PHOTOS]


Traders, farmers and other commuters plying the Ogbomoso-Igbeti road were on Saturday stranded as the road was submerged by flood.

This was as a result of heavy rain witnessed on Friday.

DAILY POST reports that the road is the only link road between Igbeti in Oke Ogun geo-political zone of the state and Ogbomoso in Ogbomoso geo-political zone of the state.

This has prevented traders, farmers and other commuters who are going to Oke Ogun geo-political zone from Ogbomoso or those who are going to Ogbomoso from Oke Ogun geo-political zone from continuing their journey.

Some of the passengers noted that they left their houses early in the morning and were disappointed that the road is no more passable.

“No vehicle, or motorcycles can enter from Oke Ogun and none of the ones coming from Ogbomoso can cross to the other side,” he said.

Another trader, Olubukola Olatunji hinted that some residential apartments have also been affected around Iluju and other communities along the road.
