September 30, 2016 – Traffic Gridlock As Ogun River Overflows Its Bank, Floods Lagos Ibadan Expressway

There was mild confusion at Kara market yesterday when the Ogun River suddenly overshot its bank, flooding the Kara cattle market before taking over the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Traders at the cattle market were seeing running helter skelter with their cattle while commuters and motorists had difficulty entering Lagos State.

The ongoing rehabilitation work being handled by Julius Berger also compounded the problem as alternate route has become impassable by motorists plying the expressway.
