The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, said in a statement on Sunday that the content had been successfully trans-loaded and that members of the state fire service had moved on to refill their water tank while ensuring that the commission and other pertinent agencies were keeping an eye on the issue.
He blamed certain impatient drivers who opted to drive against the flow of traffic, interfering with the free flow of traffic on all accessible exit routes, for the jam.
A loaded tanker was involved in a road traffic accident that happened this morning under the Ibafo pedestrian bridge on the outbound Lagos expressways, according to a portion of the statement. Since the crash, FRSC and other organizations have been keeping an eye on the situation.
