Gridlock For Hours In Lagos As President Tinubu’s Convoy Shuts Down International Airport Road

Thousands of commuters and pedestrians in Lagos State are facing a severe disruption today (Tuesday) as the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Road has been completely blocked by police operatives.

The blockade, which has left motorists and pedestrians stranded for over two hours, is reportedly due to the planned passage of President Bola Tinubu through the area later today.

An eyewitness at the scene posted on X (formerly Twitter) that the police had set up roadblocks at key intersections along the route, halting all vehicular and foot traffic.

The sudden closure has caused a massive traffic backlog, with frustrated commuters unable to proceed with their journeys.

Local authorities have advised residents to seek alternative routes or delay travel plans until further notice.

“The Murtala Muhammed  International Airport Road Lagos is blocked by the Police right now. Thousands of motorists and pedestrians are stranded for the next 2 hours.

“Reason is that President Ahmed Bola Tinubu is passing the way today”.
