The main Demo foot bridge that connects to the demo station collapsed during Tuesday midnight rains leaving many commuters and students stranded.

This footbridge is the main transport way for many commuters and school children. The bridge collapsed due to the heavy midnight rains that made the gutter overflow and destroyed the bridge.

The bridge has posed many dangers to the citizens of the community and also has frightened the people because of the bad state of it. The people of Demo had lamented over the bad state of the footbridge since the beginning of the year but yet still no response has been received from those in authority.

Many school children were stranded this morning because the footbridge had totally collapsed leaving nowhere for them to pass on. The school children and commuters had to find means to cross the gutter to commence their daily routines.

The school children had to walk a long distance to the far left side where there is a footbridge just to get to the other side of the gutter to attend to their various schools.

The footbridge had totally collapsed and the people of the community had to block the entrance of the bridge to block people from walking on it because it’s now a death trap.
