Samuel Awoyinfa, Abeokuta
There is total vehicular traffic lockdown on the old Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.
There is gridlock on both lanes of the road. The gridlock was caused by the bad condition of the road which was worsened by the downpour which occurred in the afternoon.
The potholes and other bad portions of the road which had been covered by water had slowed down the movement of vehicles.
Again, some drivers of vehicles coming from Ifo-Abeokuta end drove against traffic, which further compounded the problem.
For those travelling outside Lagos from Sango end, the gridlock had led to long queues of vehicles stretching from Sango to Iyana Ilogbo axis.
And for those travelling to Sango and Lagos, the traffic had stretched from Onihale to Iyana Ilogbo, where a stretch of the road had failed on both sides.
No traffic officer was seen at the scene, save for a policeman, who had been trying to manage the situation inside the rain.
Many commuters alighted from commercial buses they boarded and started trekking to either their destinations or free area, where they would board other buses to get home.
