The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has intimated that the contractors in charge of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway construction should be held responsible for accidents on the road for declining to provide safety warnings.
He lamented about the failure of the contractors to put up safety signs on the road that has led to the unfortunate but preventable loss of lives and carnage of the country’s busiest route.
Five people were killed in an accident on the road in the early hours of Wednesday. Three people were killed in another accident a few hours later, and 15 people were injured in various ways.
He said, “I am going to take this up with the Minister of Works. This contractor has to be held accountable; we cannot continue to pussyfoot around a project that is so important, particularly around this corridor.
“I want to call on the contractor handling this project to expedite action. We cannot take any more excuses on this project. We are going to be holding them responsible for any accident because safety measures are not in place; no safety signs and this is just an unnecessary loss of lives for us.
“We have had too many of these types of sad days on our major highways in Ogun State, but of particular note is the recurrence of this type of incidents around this corridor of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.”
“These people (drivers alone) cannot be faulted; construction is ongoing, there are no proper safety signs. Anywhere in the world, there would be enough signs that would tell whoever it is that is on the road that the road is now a dual carriageway.

This is so sad and traumatizing for not only his family but the world at large.
This barbaric act is still being practiced in most schools amongst student and they keep getting a away with it but not this time.
I have been so devastated and all that could come to my mind while watching this video is what if it’s my child !!
The perpetrators of this wicked act might go free if there’s no strong evidence to prove their guilt and later cause more havoc, but with a collective effort we must all make sure justice is served for Sylvester
A boarding school should always have CCTV in most areas to monitor the kids. The school needs to render a reasonable explanation and make sure the culprits are brought to justice.”
