Gully erosion, an impact of climate change is destroying roads and bridges in the Owena area in Idanre local government of Ondo state, Nigeria.

Weeks ago, the Owena axes of the Ondo/Akure expressway and Lajibiti bridge in the Idanre local government area, Ondo state were completely impassable following the impact of erosion which led to damage to the road leaving many travellers stranded.

DailyAgent Climate gathered that the bridge was damaged by gully erosion witnessed in the area, preventing the people of the area who are mostly cocoa farmers and timber merchants from transporting their goods to Owena and Akure, the ondo state capital.
