trafficThe roads surrounding and leading to the town of Apapa, which sits between the two seaports in Lagos, are under lockdown.

The entrances/exits to the town [Ijora and Mile Two] have been barricaded by oil tankers/articulated trucks, thus effectively making Apapa in-accessible, and causing immense inconvenience to the town and its population.


Apapa is a commercial and industrial hub in Lagos. Access to both ports is


normally very simple, yet the chaotic gridlock around and beyond Apapa/Lagos ports has affected business operations.

A normal 30-minute drive now takes between 4 to 6 hours due to the gridlock along on this route, thereby making the price of transportation and the cost of doing business extremely high around this area.
