Cross River Governor, Entourage Trapped On Calabar-Ikom Road

Motorists were on Saturday stranded at the Ekori/Obubra end of the Calabar-Ikom-Ogoja highway in Cross River State following the blockage of traffic by a fallen trailer.

It was gathered that among those stranded on the highway on Subday was the State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, who was on his way to his hometown, Obudu, for a thanksgiving service.

After attempts to clear the way failed, the governor and his entourage, had to make a detour through another route to get to his destination.

No fewer than 20 trailers and 60 other vehicles were trapped in the ensuing gridlock as they could not leave the vicinity until the road was cleared in the early hours of Sunday.
