Earlier today, Nigerians were made to stand under the scorching sun and were also not allowed to use Pedestrian bridges as the President tours the state.

According to reports from an undisclosed location in the state, a young lady made an attempt to use a pedestrian bridge that was reportedly shut down and she was immediately arrested by the security operatives on stand-by for disobeying the order.

Witnesses at the scene report that the lady was beaten by the policemen and also arrested alongside with one other man who tried to help her – to the shock of other bystanders.

Meanwhile, Lagos residents had a hard time commuting round the city earlier today as transporters also took advantage of the situation by hyping their transport fares to major locations across the states.

Some of the passengers were seen walking and pushing their luggage to the Airport in a desperate bid to avoid missing their flights.

It was gathered that all roads leading to the Airport were blocked as early as 5 am with security operatives taking positions at specific points to ensure that commuters comply with the restrictive order given by the Lagos state government.

A passenger who expressed his discomfort with the arrangements said that it was too early to block the roads as the blockage might make him miss his flight.

A security operative however explained that the road blockages were done for security reasons and to ensure that the President gets easy and smooth access to places he was scheduled to visit in Lagos.

President Buhari however arrived in the state around noon and his first destination was the Ikeja Bus Terminal, where he commisioned the newly completed project by the Lagos State government before he proceeded to the Eko Convention centre, Victoria Island to attend and chair the Colloquium to mark the 66th birthday of APC national leader and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

  2. To be bold is good but you can see the ruin of the bold from the house of the coward. There were information prior to the visit of the president that some roads would be closed during the two-days visit in Lagos State. However, a communique was issued that this restriction could be overruled by health or other emergency situations. Ideally, a rational person ought to be compliant since the directive is short-lived.
