A diesel-laden truck suffered a mishap on Otedola bridge in front of Magodo, Lagos state, on Friday and in less than one hour, traffic spread across different parts of the state.

Many who were returning from work trekked home, with a man walking a stretch of 12 kilometers.

Some Lagosians took to Twitter to share their experiences.
