The Odofin Road Igbogbo, precisely the Hill between Igbogbo Central Mosque and Olubi street junction, has become a death trap that needs urgent attention of the concerned authority.
The Hill has been a great task for heavy duty trucks and trailers to climb. In fact, virtually every week, accidents are recorded at the spot which usually lead to destruction of public and private properties.
It was established that, four days ago, the spot recorded yet another accident when a tipper could not climb the hill but only to descend uncontrollably and thereafter destroyed the electric poles within the premises.
While efforts were being made to resolve the problem, another serious one had happened yesterday 21st of February, 2017, which involved a trailer carrying a container that suddenly somersaulted. Fortunately, no life was lost in the incident.
However, the recent happening could have been averted if attention had been paid to the steps taken by High Chief Tajudeen Onasanya, the Odofin of Igbogbo to have written the Igbogbo/Bayeku LCDA, unfortunately, no action was taken ever since. He explains.
Some of the residents while speaking with the Publisher, Igbogbo/Bayeku Info Magazine, Mr Shakiru Seidu, called on the Local government authority to come to their rescue. They implored the Sole Administrator, Igbogbo/Bayeku LCDA, Chief Mrs Bolanle Basorun, to use the law enforcement agencies to keep diverting the Trailers to follow the other available routes.
