The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan , disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Kaduna.
Aruwan said, “After days of painstaking work between the Kaduna State Government, Julius Berger Nigeria PLC, the Military and other relevant agencies, the gridlock at the Kateri axis of the Kaduna-Abuja Road has been resolved.
According to him, there is now free flow of traffic at Kilometre 75 of the highway, which was the epicenter of the gridlock, after a heavy duty vehicle broke down at the location, causing a blockage.
“The government of Kaduna state once again, regrets the protracted situation which placed citizens in an undesirable state of severe hardship for many days.
“Furthermore, the government is deeply grateful to security agencies that worked round the clock to ensure continuous security and safety of stranded citizens,” Aruwan said.
