According to Adeyemi, the entire stretch of the Oba Akran Avenue would be closed to vehicular traffic from Ikeja under bridge to Sapara Street and all adjoining roads.
“Alternative routes have been provided through Ile Zik to connect Ikeja, while motorists can also navigate through Akani Doherty through Ladipo Oluwole, Adeniyi Jones and Aromire road to connect Obafemi Awolowo way.
“The Entire Ikeja Axis and adjoining roads would be strategically manned by traffic managers for a seamless flow of traffic. Motorists are therefore advised to avoid these roads and if need be, follow directional signs and obey traffic officials along this route,” he said.
