- A serious issue of flooding affecting a road along Lagos-Badagry expressway has forced some commuters to take dire steps
- Some of them have had to pay touts N100 to carry them across the flooded street
- Photos showing evidence of this have recently gone viral
Given the recent rainfall in some parts of Lagos, there have been reports of flooding on certain roads across the state. One of such roads massively affected by flood is the one under the bridge at Trade Fair Complex along Lagos-Badagry Express.
Owing to this, Nigerians commuting this road have resorted to a crude way of getting across the flooded area. Most of them have been spotted paying touts who loiter around a sum of N100 in order to be carried across the road.
These touts who do not mind the risks involved in towing the road carry their 'passengers' on their backs alongside their baggage and convey them knee-deep across the murky waters.
Elderly men and women have mostly been known to patronise these touts. Photos of the street boys carrying these commuters across the flooded area has been making rounds on social media.

Recently, some road users praised the federal government over the improved state of roads in Nigeria. Even then, they urged the FG to speedily execute projects they have already started.
