Bridge Collapses In Akwa Ibom State by radiolover(m): 5:12pm On Aug 10
An iron bridge that was constructed only God knows when has collapsed in Akwa Ibom state. The bride is said to be a major link between two local governments, Obot Akara and Ikot Ekpene local government in the state. The collapse was due to a fully loaded truck with cement that was attempting to pass the road. Meanwhile, villagers can be seen helping themselves with the fallen bags of cement. Naija way.

See photos below.

Dangote's got nothing to do with this. That's not even his truck.

I'm sure you know who's to blame now wink

Oga so4u, abeg wake up day don break. No be Imo state you dey oooo.

The bridge in question was built in the 50s and 60s. It is one of the few left in modern Nigeria.

Please if anyone knows a community with such bridge post the image in Facebook and tag Engr Etido Inyang.

Such bridge doesn't seems adequate for heavy Vehicle....most likely like a small community bridge.

Just shows human being are bunch of opportunist

See those people stealing those bags of cement like it their birth right.. This same set of people will also complain about the the government stealing from the citizens.. But will also steal if they find them self in government.

Is their hope for Nigeria? Serious honest questions

Everyday we encounter avoidable disaster in this country and if you listen to them politicians talking on The campaign ground (The likes of Akpabio and co) you will think all social amenities have been provided for every citizen of the state. Nigerians wake up and take what belongs to you
