Lagos State Traffic Management Agency tweeted, “Traffic from Eko bridge has been re-routed to Ebute-Ero to link inner marina. Men of fire service and other security agencies are still on the ground. Therefore, CMS bridge and Eko bridge inward/outward Apongbon is close to traffic at the moment,”

 

Another Tweet just in from Lagos State Traffic Management Agency says “With regards to the earlier reported fire incident at Eko bridge, Men of @LAG_FireService have been able to put out the inferno temporarily while all hands are still very much on deck for any eventuality”.
