There is heavy gridlock on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway currently leaving hundreds of passengers trekking long distances.

Hundreds of commuters were left stranded on Saturday with several passengers trekking long distances to escape the gridlock on the route.

The gridlock is caused by a diesel loaded-truck which fell on the road around Guru Maraji.
