The Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos Sector Command has alerted motorists who intend plying the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway between Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July, 2016 to either move early or take alternative route, reports ITRealms.
FRSC Sector Commander, Mr. Hyginus Omeje, gave this warning on Thursday, saying that it has become imperative to avoid being trapped in traffic as a result of the various religious activities that will take place along the corridor.
Omeje explained in a press statement made available to ITRealms and signed by himself, that the Redeemed Christian Church of God (Holy Ghost Service) and NASFAT Annual Ramadan Vigil would hold simultaneously on Friday 1st July, 2016 while Mountain of Fire Ministry would also hold its monthly power must change hands programme on Saturday 2nd July, 2016.
These, he said, coupled with the on-going rehabilitation work of the road makes it inevitable that there will be heavy volume of traffic considering the number of worshippers that will be participating in these programmes.
“The Corps therefore advices motorists who do not wish to attend the programme to seek alternate routes in and out of Lagos,” he said.
Omeje went on to suggest some alternative routes to include Lekki – Epe – Ijebu Ode to link Sagamu or Ibadan; Lagos – Abeokuta Expressway through Sango Otta – Owode – Sagamu Interchange; and Ikorodu – Odogunyan – Sagamu – Ibadan.
He also cautioned motorists corporate with FRSC officials as well as other traffic management agencies that have been deployed to control traffic during the programmes.
He further revealed that already the Corps has deployed 20 patrol vehicles, 5 Ambulances, 2 heavy duty tow truck and 200 officers and men to control traffic during the three days programme.
“In the case of any emergency, motorists are advised to call FRSC toll free line 122,” Omeje said.
