It was a rare scene at Agric Bus stop, Ikorodu, Lagos yesterday evening following a serious traffic gridlock in the area.
It took the intervention of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni to bail out several people who were trapped in the traffic snarl at Agric Bus Stop.
According to reports, traders and shoppers had taken almost half of the road, leaving only a small portion for the road users. This caused a long hold-up putting almost everybody at a standstill.
While the CP was coming from Ikorodu, he got down and had to trek to the Bus Stop to observe what exactly was the cause.
While the helpless LASTMA, traffic warden and cane wielding NURTW officials were standing, the CP and his team moved the traders away from the road and restored traffic flow before heading to Ikeja.
His leaving was not without stern warning to the traders never to display their wares on the road again.
