They added that inflammable materials including baking ingredients stored in the shops could be reasons the fire service officials could not have been able to put it out immediately.


According to a tweet by Lagos State Traffic Management Agency, “Traffic from Eko bridge has been re-routed to Ebute-Ero to link inner marina. Men of fire service and other security agencies are still on the ground. Therefore, CMS bridge and Eko bridge inward/outward Apongbon is close to traffic at the moment.”
