Nigerians on social media platforms were taken by surprise when some new photos and videos recently surfaced online showing heavy traffic on the 3rd Mainland bridge in Lagos and also on one Abuja main road despite the presidential lockdown order. Unbelievable, right?
Residents share photos of heavy traffic spotted on 3rd Mainland bridge in Lagos despite presidential lockdown order
Normally, one would believe that since the extension of the presidential COVID-19 lockdown, many residents of Ogun, Lagos and Abuja have been staying at home. Unfortunately, it is now obvious that a set of people are still defying the lockdown order evidenced by such unexpected heavy traffic on the 3rd Mainland bridge and also on a major road in Abuja.
Interestingly enough, we recently reported that the FCT Police has impounded 106 cars, motorcycles, and tricycles in Abuja for lockdown violation. So, it is shocking that there are still a huge number of people violating the lockdown order till now despite Abuja and Lagos having the highest numbers of COVID-19 confirmed cases.
Below is the viral video showing recently spotted heavy traffic on a major road in Abuja;
Unbelievable! Heavy traffic spotted on Abuja road this week despite lockdown
In the video above, the recorder can be heard talking about how he believes “hunger” must have been the reason those people seen in the traffic came out of their houses. In any case that it might be, we have to still remind every car owner and commercial driver that the FRSC and Nigeria police enforcing the lockdown order are on the lookout for scapegoats.
Also, considering the rate at which more COVID-19 cases are being confirmed in Lagos and Abuja, it will be safer to just obey the lockdown order and stay home.
Do not fall victim to arrest for violating the lockdown order.
Coronavirus is Real.
#Stay Home and #Stay Safe.
