Motorists on Wednesday found themselves stranded on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway as buyers and sellers of livestock at the Kara Market blocked sections of the road causing a massive traffic jam.

Our correspondents, who monitored the traffic congestion along the corridor, observed that large trucks carrying livestock, which were parked by the side of the highway for offloading, compounded the gridlock on the corridor.

While the livestock were being offloaded from the trucks, sellers of the animals around the Kara Market displayed them on the road, blocking the traffic on the expressway.

Our correspondents further observed that the traffic backlog heading out of Lagos ended at the OPIC, while the backlog heading into Lagos terminated just a few metres past Kara Market, starting at Arepo, as of the time this report was filed on Wednesday.

When asked on Wednesday why the EFCC had yet to arrest Bello weeks after he was declared wanted, an irate Okim claimed that the ex-governor was being shielded by the system.

“This is the last question I expected because the shame is on all of us. Is that a question I should answer alone? It’s not me, it is the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the EFCC zonal director said.

“That politically-exposed Yahaya Bello, whose crime has been traced to him by allegation and has been invited by EFCC to come and explain, and for months he is acting drama and we are all here wanting to ask questions! The shame is our own shame!
