Massive queue forms on Lagos' Ojota pedestrian bridge as government enforces usage




This morning, officials of Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) stormed Ojota bus stop in Lagos to enforce the usage of pedestrian bridges. Anyone caught crossing the Ojota express road would be arrested and fined.

The officials positioned themselves on both sides of the road so Lagosians were forced to use the bridge whether it was convenient for them or not.

You can imagine the resultant chaos...a massive queue has formed and the whole bridge is jampacked even as at the time of this post's creation. Fact is, it's a lot faster crossing the express way, but the the bridge is safer so the government has opted for safety over speed, a development Lagosians are not finding funny at all.

See more photos from the 'Great Crossing' after the cut. Lol
