Lagos Residents Begs Sanwo-Olu To Remove Pedestrian Bridge Looming To Collapse

Some residents of Ketu Alapere have begged Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to order the appropriate authority to remove the pedestrian bridge located in the area immediately, pending the time the government is ready for necessary repairs or replacement.

This was because of suspected threat of imminent collapse looming as the bridge was allegedly hit by a truck over the weekend.

Peak news reported that one Razak Koyejo, a building technocrat, while speaking with on Sunday said, though the state government has closed the entrance of the bridge with red tape to prevent pedestrians from climbing to cross the ever-busy road, the bridge may fall upon unsuspecting moving vehicle if not removed.

“To prevent major disaster in Lagos State, the government should remove Alapere pedestrian bridge completely till when it plans to repair or replace. Closing the entrance with tape is not the solution. As the vehicles are passing the road, there will definitely be vibration. The cracks on the bridge are very pronounced.

With continuous vibration, it can fall anytime. God forbids, if it falls, there is possibility of casualties. This is the time to hearken to the warning of the masses. It should not be politicised because it is life threatening.”
