Traffic on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway has been paralysed following an accident involving a Coaster bus and a trailer.

Though the Next Edition could not ascertain the time of the accident, there were no signs of traffic officials at the scene or on the road to direct traffic as at the time of filing this report.

The Next Edition reports that though the accident occurred on the outbound lane of the expressway, traffic on the inbound lane is also affected.

Our correspondent reports that the gridlock is made worse by the blockage of several sections of the road due to the on-going work on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and a heavy down pour.

The traffic begins at Ibafo and ends shortly before the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
