A major damage to a pipeline from Asa Dam waterworks, has resulted in the stoppage of water supply to major parts of Ilorin metropolis, the Kwara State capital.

The Kwara State Ministry of Water Resources, announced in a statement in Ilorin on Friday.

"This is to inform members of the public, that the main pipe conveying water to the Eastern Reservoir and Oke-Ose, both in Ilorin metropolis, has been dislocated owing to the impacts on it by some trees felled by torrential rains in the capital city," the statement by the Commissioner for Water Resources, Alhaji Wahab Femi Agbaje, stated.

"The place where this occured, is currently inaccessible owing to the volume of water at this time of constant rainfall.

"Water authorities are eager to fix the massive pipes once the water level recedes in the coming weeks," the statement added.

It explained that the development, meant that it is impossible to supply water to the Eastern Reservoir and Oke-Ose axis of the metropolis.

The statement, further added that," this regrettably means that there will be temporary lack of public water supply to some areas such as, Zango, Taiwo Oke, Isale new line, head office new line, Kwara Hotels, Balogun Fulani and Emir's road line.

Other areas affected are, Opomalu new line,Forestry road, GRA, Plantation Road, GRA, Onikanga Road, Amuro Crescent, Jani Close, GRA, Abdulrazaq Road, GRA, Abdulkadir Road, GRA, Iyeru Okin Street, Awolowo Road, ShopRite, flower garden and CBN quarters Road, among others.
