Photos: Multiple Car Accidents Cause Gridlock Along Ikorodu Road in Lagos
There were multiple accidents at Palmgrove, inward Anthony yesterday, January 23rd, causing massive gridlock for motorists plying the road.
The accident which involved a tanker and two other smaller vehicles happened towards the latter part of Wednesday.
Although there were no casualties recorded, there was heavy traffic up to Ojuelegba, yesterday evening. Considering it was the typical rush hour, it was chaos on Ikorodu road.
Security agents and LASTMA officials were alerted and they were promptly on the scene as they evacuated the remains of ‘accidented’ vehicles to ease traffic.
For hours, the main carriageway was inaccessible and all traffic was diverted to the service lane.
Officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management [LASTMA] asked commuters to be patient as they made spirited efforts to get things back to normal.
