A long stretch of traffic has built up from the Mile 12 bridge all the way to Ikorodu Bus stop as soldiers have barricaded the ever-busy road based on what they called an “orders from above.”
The Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, had announced that there would be no restriction of movement today(Sunday) over the rescheduled elections.
Our correspondent learnt that most of those caught in the traffic are Christians, attempting to go to church to observe the Palm Sunday.
It was learnt that following the hiccups experienced in the voting on Saturday, the Independent National Electoral Commission postponed elections in five local government areas in Lagos till today.
These are Alimosho, Oshodi/Isolo, Eti Osa, Kosofe and Somolu LGAs.
However, a resident of Ikorodu, Abiodun Samuel, wondered why the residents of Ikorodu would be barred from moving when IKorodu local government was not among the areas that INEC had listed.
The police have, however, warned people who are not to vote to stay away from the polling unit.
