Despite Lockdown, Checkout The Heavy Traffic On Third-Mainland Bridge

As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, the need to institute a lockdown became imperative. Several cities around the world have instituted lockdown. Lagos, Nigeria, is one of such places.

Lagos, the commercial hub of the nation, is the hardest hit by the pandemic.

A lockdown in Lagos – together with the neighbouring state of Ogun and the capital Abuja – came into force on following an announcement by President Muhammadu Buhari. According to him, the fight against the virus was a “matter of life and death”.





With that announcement, more than 25 million people are placed on a two-week lockdown in parts of Nigeria in a bid to curtail the spread of coronavirus,

Currently, Lagos State has 309 confirmed cases of the COVID-19. There have been 14 fatalities.

Despite the lockdown, some part of the city still experiences heavy vehicular movements. For instance, earlier today, On-Air-Personality with Metro FM, Oloruntobi Adejare, posted photos of traffic gridlock on the Third-Mainland Bridge.

This is happening despite repeated caution by the government for residents to refrain from contravening the lockdown instruction.

There are also claims that the gridlock may be due to roadblocks at security checkpoints.

Lockdown is an emergency protocol that usually prevents people or information from leaving an area. The protocol can usually only be initiated by someone in a position of authority.





A full lockdown usually means that people must stay where they are and may not enter or exit a building or rooms within said building. If people are in a hallway, they should go to the nearest safe, enclosed room.
