Some road users who spoke lamented over the situation which they said had kept them on the road for hours.
Mr Wale Olagunsoye, an Ikeja-bound commercial driver, while narrating his ordeal in the gridlock from Lagos Island to Costain alleged that traffic agents did not control the situation.
“I do not know the cause of this heavy traffic and why the traffic wardens were nowhere to be found to bail us out of this mess,” Olagunsoye said.
Mr Paul Okafor, a businessman, said that he decided to walk from Eric Moore to TBS to pay his last respect to Ojukwu when he noticed the traffic congestion.
“Although the traffic is heavy, I have to park my car somewhere at Eric Moore so as to have a glimpse of the remains of Ojukwu who has contributed immensely to the building of this nation,” he said.
Okafor called for the deployment of traffic control agents to strategic routes to arrest the situation.
Mr Chika Michael, a commuter, said he was disappointed because he had to pay N200 instead of N70 from Orile to the Island, yet, had to get down from the bus and walk to his destination.
