The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, personally visited and monitored the clearing of obstructions responsible for heavy gridlock along the Long Bridge and Kara end of the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway on Monday 19th July, 2021.
CP Hakeem Odumosu decided to liberate the Expressway from traders who have turned the axis and route to market square where rams and other sallah items are being sold. The heavy presence of traders along the Expressway has contributed to continuous gridlock which could trigger security risks on both states, Lagos and Ogun, if not timely checked.
The Commissioner of Police took the bull by the horn and ordered the Commanders Rapid Response Squad, Lagos State, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and Taskforce, Lagos State, CSP Sola Jejeloye to detail some of their men and patrol vans at the axis in order to complement the efforts of the Ogun State Police Command in sanitising the area.
The police boss then assured the general public, especially road users along the axis, of adequate traffic management and security of lives and property during and after the Eid-El Kabir celebration.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, was accompanied to the area by the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos State, Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide, the Officer in charge, Lagos State Traffic Division CSP Titi Oriyomi, Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi and others.
