Residents of the Agura-Gberigbe road of the Ikorodu area of Lagos State which include; Agura, Gberigbe, Igbodu, Ewu-Owa, Mowo-nla, Oke-Agbo, Oko-ito, among others have lamented over the bad state of their roads, with residents experiencing restriction of movement especially whenever it rains.

Chairman of the community, Pastor Taiwo Kayode said that so many homes and properties have been abandoned, children have been unable to go to school and workers find it difficult to get to their workplaces as a result of the rain.

“Movement has further been constrained because commercial vehicles are no longer plying the roads for fear of their vehicles being damaged, and the few that still ply the route are charging more than 400 per cent higher than the usual cost,” he said.

Pastor Kayode affirmed the fact that several efforts have been made by the local council in the past by filling the gills with stones, but the huge stones end up damaging their vehicles instead. Residents have been left with no choice but to take alternative routes by traveling several kilometres through Imota, a neighboring town in Ikorodu, to link other destinations.

The community leader, pleaded with the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, to extend his good works, especially on road rehabilitation, to the area and help with the road before the rain fully commences this year.
