There is presently a total gridlock on the Ilesha-Akure-Owo express road, The Precision NG reports.
The gridlock which is now over three hours, our correspondent learnt was caused by the release of students of the Federal Government Girls College who are on vacation.
The gridlock also affected the main roads that connect Akure, the Ondo state capital to the express way.
“I have been trekking from Plaza area in the last 30 minutes,” an Akure resident lamented.
Our correspondent who monitored the gridlock from Ijapo axis of the city, spent about one hour before getting to the school’s gate while trekking.
At the gate, the students could be seen with their parents.
While some are already locked in the gridlock which started from the school’s gate, some parents were seeing carrying their wards luggage.
Some of the commuters blamed the school’s management for releasing the students on a week day, querying why they could not be released on Sunday when there would be low traffic.
