Photos: Ambode Commissions New Ikola Bridge

 

Akinwunmi Ambode, the governor of Lagos state, has commissioned the new Ikola Bridge (Old Obasanjo Bridge), one of the Lagos-Ogun State Boundary Network of 21 Roads in Alimosho Local Government Area.

Ambode is expected to inaugurate 21 Lagos-Ogun boundary road networks in the area.

However, the roads leading to Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA from Ipaja end were shut to vehicular traffic due to the event. Also, commuters had to trek reasonable distances to board mainly commercial motorcycles that operate on either ends of the boundaries.

Private vehicle owners and commercial vehicle operators were stuck in the confusion, as many of them claimed that they were not warned ahead of the event.

Security agencies including the Rapid Response Squad; Lagos State Traffic Management Authority; and officers of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Corps were present to maintain law and order.
