Robbers, Kidnappers Using Bad Portions on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway To Wreck Havoc
….As Arepo Residents Beseech Fasola over Pace of Work at OPIC
A resident of Arepo, a community along the Lagos-Ibadan road Alhaji Rasaq Asaju, has called on the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola to urgently intervene on the slow work by Julius Berger at the OPIC estate, as armed robbers and kidnappers have been taking advantage of the gridlock at the point to attack, rob and kidnap travelers on the road.
Asaju, a resident of Arepo who works at Lagos posted in his Facebook account on Monday described the presence of men of the constitution company as charade, as the company has not achieved a kilometer construction in the last six months.
“PLS HELP BEG MINISTER FASHOLA
BRF, good morning. Julius Berger works at OPIC to berger is a charade. For almost 6 months, not 1 kilometer has been completed. And people are going through pains daily.
“Hoodlums seize the nagging gridlock to rob, kidnap and maim. And you are not saying anything, Sir. It takes 3 to 4 hrs to get to berger from Arepo. And when you get to the supposed work site, nothing is happening: just a couple of helmet donning chaps chatting away.
“PLEASE if govt is not funding the site, please withdraw JB and let them open up our dilapidated road. The agony is worse than passing a rough road. PLEASE, save us this agony,” he appealed.
Reports had it on the 27th of August, 2022 that the Federal government apologized for the slow pace of work and promised improved traffic management at the OPIC axis of the expressway but the situation has remained same, which made Asaju and others to aired their anger on the social media.
