The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Godwin Eke, said on Wednesday that remedial work was being carried out on Wharf Road in Apapa to reduce the rate of accident.
Eke said in Lagos that the road was being rehabilitated as part of ongoing emergency repair of roads in Apapa.
“We received reports that trucks have been falling there. We now decided to do something remedial, something temporary to reduce the rate of accident there.
“That is part of our plan for the permanent works on Apapa-Tin Can Road.
“It is included in our quantities; there is no contravention; it is part of the emergency repairs that we are carrying out.
