Despite the lockdown order in Lagos, FCT and Ogun State over the spread of the deadly coronavirus in the country, it seems people are beginning to undermine the importance of ‘stay at home order’.

For some days now, just 7 days into the total lockdown that was supposed to last for 2 weeks, massive traffic is beginning to resurface in many parts of Lagos.

The twin effect of boredom and idleness yesterday forced Lagos residents to the streets on Day Seven of the lockdown. Barely seven days into the 14-day stay-at-home order issued by the federal government and enforced by the Lagos State government, traffic snarls resurfaced in some parts of the state as angry Lagosians have begun to flout the directive.

In different parts of the state, Lagosians were seen on the roads, either driving, walking or having group fitness exercises together. The highway at Gbagada was blocked by residents who turned the road into a fitness class yesterday morning, thus making mockery of the social distancing policy and restriction order.

At Lagos Island, there were pockets of traffic on the Lekki-Epe expressway. In Lekki, the traffic stretched and lasted for a long time because some motorists who tried to cut corners drove against traffic.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Lagos, Bala Elkanah, said the gridlock was caused by the blockage of roads by men of the Lagos State Police Command.

He said: “We narrowed the road and blocked it to ensure effective checking of vehicles before allowing them to pass. Don’t forget that some essential workers are allowed to use the road and we have to allow them to pass.”

When asked what action is being taken by the police when a road user not on an essential duty is found, he replied, “we impound the vehicles immediately. We have impounded over 500 vehicles and many vehicles were impounded from that area too.
