“For those coming from Sango inward Mokola, they could pass through the Veterinary junction to link Sabo, Recreation Club to Dugbe, Iyangaku, Oke Bola et al”.
“However, for motorists who must ply the Mokola route, we implore them to be cautious and exercise patience noting that vigilance of everyone is safety for all while negligence of anyone portends danger to all”, Fagbemi concluded.
