For the umpteenth time, multiple accidents involving at least 10 vehicles have locked  down the traffic on the Otedola Bridge inward Berger with several people trapped.

 

The accident which occurred on Wednesday morning has caused a gridlock on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

 

According to the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LATSMA), the accident involved a containerized truck, a pickup and a high capacity bus as well as several cars.

 

“The accident is said to involve up to 10 vehicles… we advise motorists to use CMD road from Secretariat towards Otedola for now as we await more updates on this situation.”

LASTMA, in a post on its Twitter handle, @followlatsma said “Casualties still are trapped in the pickup. The road is totally blocked for now. Emergency agencies are on ground.”

 

As a result of the accident, the lock down has now extended to Ojota Bridge for those going in between Berger, while the backlog for those going in between Tollgate have merged with the traffic from Kara Cattle Market in Ogun State section.

 

Meanwhile, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Police and fire fighters have been deployed to manage the situation and rescue trapped occupants of vehicles.
