Investigate frequent ‘blood sucking’ accidents on Otedola bridge, Nigerians task FG


Nigerians have demanded an inquiry into the frequent road mishaps that occured on the popular Otedola bridge along the Lagos Ibadan expressway.

The popular bridge has become infamous for deadly accidents involving trucks, petrol tankers and commercial buses in recent times.


WuzupNigeria on Saturday reported another explosion on the bridge involving a tanker filled with PMS and a truck-laden with a container.


Consequently, the accident has led to a gridlock, as is the norm on the bridge during similar occurrence,  leading to suspicion that something sinister could be spurring those accidents.

A Twitter user alleged that he was forced to get an access card through an estate he doesn’t live just to avoid the dreaded bridge.


“I don’t live in Omole Phase 2 but i had to buy their estate sticker so i can pass through instead of plying through that blood sucking Otedola bridge. I avoid that bridge with every power in me,” he said.


Another user, @WaleAdetono wondered when the mystery behind the reccurring accidents on the Otedola bridge would be unravelled.

Another user, @Scar_official added: “When would this incessant accident on Otedola Bridge end? Is it till it kills more people? Why would someone say the bridge is cursed when no root cause analysis has been done by safety professionals & engineers?”
