Tragedy was averted in the early hours of Tuesday, along the Lagos-Sagamu expressway, after a tanker laden with PMS lost control and crashed in the construction barriers.
Contents of the tanker spilled on the road with men of the fire service on standby.
A combined team of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) diverted traffic to the other side of the road to ease gridlock, while efforts are ongoing to remove the obstruction.
In a statement by the FRSC Sector Commander, Ogun State, Corps Commander, Clement Oladele, he said there is slow movement of traffic from Mowe to Sagamu.
Therefore, travellers are advised to restraint and avoid driving against traffic, as normalcy would be restored shortly.
