Currently, there is a diversion for all those leaving Lagos and this will cause traffic gridlock for some hours. 

A combined team of the Lagos State Fire Brigade, Lagos State Rescue Service, Police Command, the Federal Road Safety Commission, Lagos State Traffic Management Agency are on the ground to tackle the situation.
