WARNING: Do Not Use Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Today
If you have plans to travel to Ibadan today, July 28,
consider using Lagos-Abeokuta
Expressway and avoid the Lagos-Ibadan Express way.
Sickening is one way to describe the circumstance that travellers on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway are facing today.
They have spent the time it will take an individual to travel from Lagos to Ibadan but they have not covered more than 200 metres.
It is a lockdown circumstance and travellers are lamenting already, wondering why they are losing man-hours to a traffic jam they are not sure of when it will clear off.
A trailer had overturned around Christ Embassy near the Redeem Christian Church redemption Camp along the road and that trailer has not been removed.
It is Ogun State and commuters are wondering why the State government has not made effort to remove the trailer since it fell last night.
It is not clear what caused the overturn, but there have been repair works on the road ongoing for months now.
Bounce News Correspondent on the road reports that vehicles are taking an alternative route near the road, which is in a terrible state. It is the area cleared for rail track and it is terrible.
Commuters expect the Ogun State government to come to their aid and not wait for the Federal Government to intervene in the removal of the truck.
The alternative route for persons that want to travel to Ibadan today or out of Lagos is the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.
The recklessness of truck drivers cannot be ruled out as one of the reasons the vehicles overturn.
Watch what this tipper driver did.
