Commuters were left stranded on both sides of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Wednesday due to a gridlock whose cause commuters said they weren’t sure of.

On the part of the road going into Lagos from Ogun, the traffic was mostly felt from Ibafo up to a point almost close to Warewa Area.

Motorists leaving Lagos to Ogun had to deal with the traffic from the Lagos State Secretariat, Alausa, down to Warewa.

Commuters who couldn’t afford to waste time on the road resorted to commercial motorcycle ride, popular known as Okada, to beat the traffic; while some motorists drove their vehicles off the expressway and through untarred paths to escape the traffic.
