National President CAN revealed how they escaped Maiduguri gate massacre

The National President , Christian Association of Nigeria , Rev. Samsom Ayokunle , on Monday said he and his team escaped terrorists last week while on tour of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital .

Ayokunle , who was represented by a National Director at CAN headquarters in Abuja , Bishop Stephen Adegbite , stated this at the inauguration of a new state executive committee of CAN for Edo State.

He said , “We were going to Maiduguri last week with our president , our vehicle broke down on the road and we had to take three taxis to our destination.

They (terrorists ) laid ambush expecting to see CAN vehicles and then attack only for them to hear that we have arrived our destination .

They killed 31 people that night for missing their target. ”

He called for unity among Christians in the midst of attacks from suspected terrorists , bandits and other violent crimes against Christians.

Addressing the Edo State members of CAN , Ayokunle said Christians had no option than to remain united , just as he urged the state chairman , Bishop Oyonnude Kure, to ensure that his second term was more productive .

“ The body of Christ must remain one; unity is not negotiable because God has been faithful.

The leadership of CAN is always under threat but it must ensure unity because we have our members all over the country.

So , what else do we do than to remain united and work together?”

Search for a 21 year old passenger who jumped into Lagoon resumes on Tuesday

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency said it would on Tuesday resume the search for a 21- year – old man , Daibo Davies , who plunged into the Lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge inward Adeniji Adele , Lagos Island.

It had been reported that Davies , a resident of Sosanya Street, Soluyi, in the Gbagada area of Lagos , on Saturday ordered a Uber cab from Gbagada.

On getting to the Third Mainland Bridge around 11am , he was said to have pretended that he had a stomach upset and begged the driver to stop so he could relieve himself.

In a jiffy , he reportedly climbed the pavement of the bridge and plunged into the water.

A combined team of LASEMA , Marine Police and local divers had yet to find the suicidal man , while the cab driver , Idowu Badmos , was taken to the Adekunle Police Station along with his car .

The Head of Public Affairs , LASEMA , Nosa Okunbor, in a statement on Sunday , noted that the rescue was suspended due to the undercurrents of the water and exhaustion , adding that the agency would resume the search on Tuesday.

He said the hope of rescuing Davies alive had dimmed.

Okunbor said , “ Reasons attributed for the suspension of the search include the very strong and fast undercurrents of the lagoon’ s water, which according to divers, have not assisted in the rescue efforts , and exhaustion due to the long , strenuous and tiring search for the victim . ”

Nosa, while quoting the Director – General of LASEMA , Olufemi Oke – Osanyintolu , noted that the need for swift retrieval of the victim alive necessitated the inclusion of local divers in the rescue-turned – recovery operation.

Super Eagles and Leone Stars clash in Asaba ahead 2021 AFCON qualifiers

The 15, 400 – capacity Stephen Keshi Stadium , Asaba will host next month ’ s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between Nigeria’ s Super Eagles and the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone , the Nigeria Football Federation has announced .

“We have finally settled for the Stephen Keshi Stadium , Asaba for the qualifying match against Sierra Leone.

The match will be played on Friday 27th March 2020 , ” NFF General Secretary, Dr . Mohammed Sanusi , stated .

The venue , named after former Nigeria captain and coach, the late Stephen Keshi , has hosted several international matches involving the Super Eagles and the Nigeria U- 23 squad , since it was opened two years ago .

Uganda were the first opposition entertained at the venue by the Eagles in a friendly match days after Nigeria sealed a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations ticket in November 2018. The match ended goalless .

The Eagles have since beaten Seychelles 3 – 1 (2019 AFCON qualifier ) and piped seven – time African champions Egypt 1 – 0 (a friendly) at the same venue , as well as a 0 – 0 stalemate with Zimbabwe in a pre – 2019 AFCON friendly in June last year .

The U- 23 team turned back Libya and Sudan in 2019 U – 23 AFCON qualifying matches at the same venue .

With the Nigeria Football Federation having picked March 27 for the first match , the Sierra Leone Football Association is now most likely to opt for Tuesday 31st March (the final day in the FIFA window ) for the return leg scheduled for the Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown .

Victory in next month’ s match – day 3 fixture against the Leone Stars will take the Super Eagles closer to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals , as they currently perch at the top of their pool with the maximum six points from their first two matches and a goals difference of plus three.

A 2 – 1 win over Benin Republic in Uyo last November was followed by a 4 – 2 whiplash of Lesotho in Maseru .

The Super Eagles have further dates against the Squirrels of Benin Republic in Cotonou ( in June) and the Crocodiles of Lesotho in Nigeria (in September ) .

Aggrieved father attacks medical workers, stabs nurse over son’s death

An aggrieved father has attacked medical workers at the Sapele Central Hospital , Delta State, over the death of his child at the medical facility .

Reports learnt that the man went berserk minutes after medical workers broke the news of the death of his one- year – six – month – old child to him .

The man , whose identity could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report , was alleged to have accused the doctors and nurses on duty of complicity in the child ’ s death and vowed that “one of them must die with his son. ”

The suspect was also alleged to have chased one of the doctors in an attempt to stab him , but the latter escaped.

The source said , “ The baby was brought in with a bad health condition .

The accident and emergency unit resuscitated and admitted him to the children ward .

“ The doctors there reviewed the case and commenced medication .

Being that the condition was already very bad , maybe the father expected a miraculous recovery , but the condition deteriorated further and the baby died .

“ The child ’ s father was angry that the doctors and nurses could not save him .

He threatened that anybody he saw would die with the child .

He saw one of the nurses inside the ward and attacked her .


“He first gave the nurse a headbutt and the lady fell .

He beat her up and brought out an object .

He attempted to stab her in the neck , but the lady dodged it and the object landed on her ear and almost cut it off .

“ When people raised the alarm , he rushed back to the children ward and fled with the baby’ s corpse .

The management of the hospital reported to the police . ”

The Police Public Relation Officer , DSP Onome Onowakpoyeya, confirmed the arrest of the suspect, saying she could not tell the gravity of the injury sustained by the nurse .

The Medical Director of the Central Hospital, Sapele , Dr Benedict Ogbimi , noted that the case had been charged to court.

10 benefits reasons couples should have sex regularly

Sex is undeniably pleasurable.

However , sex- related issues are among common reasons for disagreements among couples.

Some partners don’ t view sex as vital hence their failure to value its benefits to their wellbeing .

Experts have noted that couples should handle sex matter well so they don’ t become knotty in the bedroom .
Couples can learn from the 10 benefits of regular sex below to ignite their sex lives.

Sex makes you hate your job less
Researchers have linked loving one’ s job to having a good sex life .

They said that good sex life can make one enjoy one’ s less .

The research published in the Journal of Management stated that good sex would not only stop one from hating one’ s job , but also make one love one’ s job more .

Oregon State University researchers asked 159 married employees to complete two surveys every day for two weeks.

The participants noted how many times they had sex between the end of their work shift and the next morning .

Then, in the afternoon , they answered questions about how happy and engaged they felt at their jobs.

People who had sex the night before work were more likely to immerse themselves at their jobs and enjoy their time in the office the next day than those who didn ’ t make time for sex , the researchers found .

The researcher said , “ This might happen because sex produces a significant ‘ morning positive effect . ’

Meaning all of the good feelings associated with sex mainly stemming from feel-good chemicals like oxytocin and dopamine carried over and produced a nice mood boost the next day, too . ”

Sex lowers your cancer risk
According to a study from the Boston University of Public Health, frequent ejaculation lowers prostate cancer risk in men , Health 24 . com stated.

Researchers surveyed nearly 32, 000 men about their ejaculation frequency and followed them up for 18 years.

They found that men between age 20 and 29 were 19 per cent less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer if they ejaculated 21 times or more each month compared to guys who didn’ t ejaculate as often .

The benefit was even greater for older men; men 40 to 49 who met the same ejaculation standards saw a two – per cent reduction in their prostate cancer risk.

The study authors said frequent ejaculation might play a part in clearing out any cancer- causing infections that could develop within one’ s prostate .

It boosts the immune system and lowers the risk of prostate and breast cancer.

Sex helps you sleep better
Suffering from insomnia ?

Don’ t overwork yourself. Sex increases one’ s heart rate which then helps the body to relax .

Feel- good hormones are released during sex, in turn , promoting better sleep and rest.

This is one of the major benefits of sex in marriage .

Sex has also been linked to good sleep by some medical experts .

One of such is a men’ s health sleep advisor, Dr Chirstopher Winter , who said orgasm helped one to sleep better .

He said , “ Sex primes you for the perfect snooze by making you feel super relaxed , thanks to oxytocin ’ s stress – reducing effects .

But oxytocin isn ’ t the only hormone that floods your system after orgasm .

Your body also releases a hormone called prolactin, which suppresses dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps you feel awake .

“ Also , if you are having sex in the dark , your body will think it ’ s time for bed.

So that sparks the release of melatonin , a hormone that makes you feel sleepy and tells your body it ’ s time to rest.

The combination of those three hormones makes you sleep in no time . ”

Frequent sex may protect your heart
After following more than 100 men for an average of 16 years, researchers found that men who had sex two to three times per week had a significantly lower rate of cardiovascular disease than men who only had sex a few times a month or less , according to a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology .

There are some theories as to why that could be, according to the researchers .

For one, sex contributes to the physical activity needed to protect one’ s heart , Healthline . com stated .

The American Heart Association recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week , so regular outdoor exercise should be done in addition to what one does in the bedroom .

Besides, it noted that if one was having frequent sex, one would more likely to be in an intimate relationship.

The researchers, however, put a caveat to this , saying if a person had cardiovascular problems in the past , such person should probably wait to have sex until their heart issues returned to normal .

“ Talk to your doctor before you do the deed, especially if you are on medication , ’’ the researcher added .

A supportive partner makes for a happier heart – physically and emotionally by easing your stress levels .

That ’ s a win for your ticker . Too much stress can cause a heart attack or stroke by increasing the amount of inflammation in your body, a research from Harvard Medical School found .

Sex helps your penis perform better
A study published in the American Journal of Medicine stated that having sex keeps manhood strong.

It stated that men don’ t have to use the weapon often to notice the benefits.

In a five – year Finnish survey of nearly 1 , 000 men aged 55 to 75 years old , those who had sex once a week were half as likely to develop erectile dysfunction than men who did less often.

Supporting this study, a medical doctor, Juha Koskimäki, said , “ An erection delivers crucial amounts of oxygen to your penis .

Low oxygen levels can cause scar tissue to develop, which can make it difficult to get hard .

But if you ’ re going through a dry spell , remember that other factors you ’ re in control of – like smoking and inactivity also raise your erectile dysfunction . ’’

Sex makes you happier
It’ s normal to be excited and happy after orgasm but that’ s not all to it .

There are also scientific reasons why one experiences bliss after having great sex.

Scientists explained that the body is flooded with oxytocin , a stress – reducing hormone a few minutes after one climaxes .

“This makes one feel relaxed , happy , and closer to one’ s partner afterward, ’’ the scientist added .

A sex researcher at Indiana University, Dr Debby Herbenick, said , “Since your oxytocin levels stabilise 10 minutes after you orgasm , try cuddling post- coitus to keep the good vibes going. Oxytocin can be released not only during intercourse but also during close touching . ”

Also , a lead researcher of a Canadian study on how sex makes one happier, Dr Robin Milhausen , said , “Not cuddling is the biggest mistake you make in bed, the woman is more likely to find the experience pleasurable if you spend six to 10 minutes cuddling with her afterward .

She also gets a rush of oxytocin after orgasming, which makes her crave more affection .

Simply playing with her hair, rubbing her back or resting her head on your chest can help her get that . ”

Sex makes you look younger
A clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital , Dr David Weeks , said his extensive research had found older men and women with an active love lives looked five to seven years younger than their actual age .

He said , “ But you don’ t have to be at it every night to enjoy youth- enhancing effects . In fact , during my 10- year study , I found the quality was as important as quantity , with the anti – ageing benefits stronger if the sex was classed as loving. ”

Sex might relieve your headache
An orgasm might act as a natural pain – reliever , according to a 2013 German study .

Your brain is bombarded with endorphins ; neurotransmitters that produce a feeling of pleasure and pain relief- during sex, so researchers wanted to find out if having sex while one’ s head was aching might ease the pain .

As published in Health 24 .com , they surveyed nearly 300 people with migraines and more than 60 with cluster headaches who had sex during an episode and found that 60 per cent of migraine sufferers and 37 per cent with cluster headaches said they felt better afterward.

Sex makes your relationship better
It is often believed that sex makes relationships last longer but there ’ s more to mentioning it on the surface .

A study from the University of Toronto Mississauga said having sex once a week kept lovers happy .

The research stated that having sex more than once wouldn’ t make one happier so sex once in a week is what one needed to make one relationship more lively , healthier and better .

Also , a study published in the Association for Psychological Science, said all the happy feelings experienced after sex could last up to 48 hours for couples, which keeps their bond going strong long after the completion of the session .

Sex burns kilojoules

A biostatistician at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, David Allison , found that the average person burnt a mere 21 calories during average sex session .

He discovered that sex lasted six minutes on average , noting that the energy output equated to a paltry 20 or so calories , about the same as walking .

However , if done with enough gusto , sex could still count as ‘ significant exercise ’ , the Quebec researchers said , reporting in the journal Plos One.

“ The level of intensity that is exerted from sexual activity could be higher than that of walking at (4 . 8 km /h ) but less than that of jogging at (8 km /h ), ” the researchers wrote in the study .

The researchers, from the University of Quebec at Montreal , looked at 21 heterosexual couples aged between 18 and 35. The average recorded session lasted 24. 7 minutes – the shortest being 10 and the longest 57 minutes .

During four sex sessions at home , couples wore a SenseWear armband that tracked their energy expenditure.

They also answered questions on how tired they were afterwards , how much effort they put in and how much they enjoyed it .

Participants previously underwent a half – hour treadmill test so the researches could measure how many calories they burned during exertion- and then compared the readings from the armband worn during sex. Men, for example , burned 9 . 2 calories per minute on the treadmill – but 4 . 2 in the bedroom. For women , this fell to 7 . 1 calories while jogging .

Supreme Court fixes Tuesday for Imo, Zamfara hearing judgments’ review

The Supreme Court has fixed Tuesday for the hearing of an application filed by Emeka Ihediaoha seeking the reversal of the January 14 , 2020 judgment which removed him as Imo State governor and installed Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress as his replacement .

It was learnt that the notice for the hearing was served on the parties to the case last Thursday .

A lawyer in Ihedioha’ s legal team , Mr Edidiong Usungurua , confirmed to our correspondent that parties to the case had been served with the notice for the Tuesday’ s hearing .

But our correspondent gathered that scheduled proceedings may not proceed to the substantive hearing on Tuesday due to the fact that the respondents to the application had yet to file their replies to the application.

The respondents are Uzodinma, APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission.

A Supreme Court official told our correspondent , “Even if the respondents file and serve their replies on Monday , the applicants – Ihedioha and his party , the Peoples Democratic Party – may still ask for time to which they are entitled to file their responses to the replies of the respondents .

“ So , there is likely to be further adjournment of the case before the application can be finally heard . ”

A seven – man panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria , Justice Tanko Muhammad, had in its January 14, 2020 judgment removed Iheodioha as the Governor of Imo State and declared Uzodinma as the winner of the last governorship election in the state.

Justice Kudirat Kekere – Ekun , who read the lead judgment had upheld Uzodinma’ s appeal ruling that the votes polled in 388 out of the 3 , 523 polling units were excluded in the final results declared by INEC in the state .

The apex court held that Uzodinma emerged winner of the election after the addition of the excluded votes .

Ihedioha, through his lead counsel , Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN) , a former Attorney -General of the Federation, had on February 5 , 2020 filed an application before the court seeking “an order setting aside as a nullity the judgment delivered by this Honourable Court on the 14th of January 2020 in Appeal No . SC. 1462/ 2019 and Cross Appeal No. SC . 1470 /2019 . ”

Meanwhile , the Supreme Court ’ s Director of Information , Dr Festus Akande, also informed our correspondent that the court had scheduled for hearing on Tuesday All Progressives Congress ’ request for review of the May 24, 2019 judgment which nullified the victory of all the party ’ s candidates at the 2019 general elections held in Zamfara State.

Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) , who is the lawyer to the Kabir Marafa – led faction of the APC in the state , and whose case was upheld in the contested judgment also confirmed the Tuesday’ s hearing .

The Supreme Court had on August 22 , 2019 struck out the APC’ s application but it was refiled in November 2019 by the party ’ s lawyer, Chief Robert Clarke (SAN).

The five – man panel led by Justice Olabode Rhodes – Vivour , had on August 22 , 2019 unanimously struck out the application on the grounds that it was incompetent as the complete judgments of the apex court comprising all the judgments of the five members of the panel being contested by the party were not attached to the application.

Justice Rhodes – Vivour who delivered the ruling said the applicant only attached the lead judgment and failed to exhibit the consenting judgments of the four other members of the panel which gave the May 24, 2019 verdict .

“ By our rules, the application is incompetent, and it is hereby struck out, ” he ruled .

The apex court had in a unanimous judgment of the five – man panel led by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria , Justice Tanko Muhammad , delivered on May 24 , 2019 , declared that APC never conducted primary elections, thus had no valid candidates for the general elections election .

It held that all the votes credited to the party and its candidates in the elections were wasted.

The apex court then declared the first runners – up in the 2019 general elections in the state as the winners of all the offices earlier declared to have been won by the APC and its candidates .

The APC had been declared the winner of the governorship governorship election , as well as the entire three senatorial seats , seven House of Representatives seats and the 24 House of Assembly seats , contested for in the February 23 and March 11 , 2019 general elections in the state .

With the governorship and deputy governorship seats which the party had won in the elections, the APC had won all the 36 elective offices available in the state .

The apex court retrieved the victories recorded the APC , adjudged not to have fielded valid candidates for the said election , and gave them to the second runners – up in the polls.

But the APC , through its counsel , Robert Clarke (SAN) , filed an application on June 17 , 2019 , asking the Supreme Court to “ review , amend , correct and/ or set aside the consequential orders ” contained in the May 24, 2019 judgment of the apex court.

Multiple rockets hits near US embassy in Iraq capital

Multiple rockets hit an Iraqi base hosting American troops near the US embassy early Sunday, the latest in a flurry of attacks against US assets in the country.

“ The Coalition confirms small rockets impacted the Iraqi base hosting (coalition) troops in the International Zone . No casualties , ” said coalition spokesman Myles Caggins .

That base , known as Union III , is the headquarters for the US -led coalition, deployed in Iraq since 2014 to help local troops fight the Islamic State jihadist group .

Iraq’ s military said three Katyusha rockets hit inside the Green Zone, the high – security enclave where the US mission and Union III are located , as well as Iraqi government buildings , United Nations offices and other embassies .

A fourth rocket hit a logistics base in a different neighbourhood operated by the Hashed al – Shaabi , a military network officially incorporated into the Iraqi state , the Iraqi military said .

There was no immediate statement from the Hashed .

Strikes on assets of both the US and Hashed at the same time are unusual , as Washington has blamed hardline elements within the military network for repeated rocket attacks on American installations across Iraq.

Sunday’ s was the 19th attack since October to target either the embassy or the roughly 5 , 200 US troops stationed alongside local forces across Iraq.

No group has claimed responsibility for any of the incidents .

In late December , a rocket attack on the northern Iraqi base of K 1 left one US contractor dead and unleashed a dramatic series of events .

Washington responded with retaliatory strikes against Kataeb Hezbollah, a hardline Hashed faction in western Iraq.

Days later , an American drone strike in Baghdad killed top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani and his right – hand man , Hashed deputy chief Abu Mahdi al – Muhandis .

Hashed factions have vowed revenge for the pair ’ s death but said they would prioritise a political objective first : the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

But the network includes a broad range of groups and some have appeared more willing to harass US troops militarily .

Sunday’ s attack came just hours after one of the Hashed ’ s Iran – backed factions , Harakat al – Nujaba , announced a “ countdown” to ousting American forces from the country.

A top leader within Nujaba , Nasr al- Shammary , tweeted a photograph of what he claimed was an American military vehicle , adding : “ We are closer than you think. ”

Sunday’ s assault sent warning sirens blaring across the diplomatic compound , a US military source and a Western diplomat based nearby.

Reports heard multiple strong explosions followed by aircraft circling near the Green Zone .

Juergen Klopp sympathy Man City for two – year ban from European football

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said he had sympathy for his Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola in the wake of the English champions ’ two – year ban from European football .

The ban was dished out by UEFA for the club ’ s alleged breaching of Financial Fair Play rules.

Manchester City’ s domestic title challenge are all but over , with Liverpool 25 points ahead after beating Norwich City 1 – 0 away on Saturday .

But Klopp said the news on Friday about the European ban for the Manchester club had taken him by surprise .

“ It was a shock . Complete wow !” he said .

“ The only thing I can say is about football .

What they have done on the football pitch is exceptional .

The rest, I don’ t know .

“ I really feel for them , Pep and the players , but that is how it is.

They can appeal .

So , we will see what happens then.

It is obviously serious .

“ But the football they played was exceptional and will always be exceptional . ”

European football’ s governing body UEFA said Manchester City had committed “ serious breaches ” of its FFP regulations .

This was by “overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the break – even information submitted to UEFA between 2012 and 2016. ”

Manchester City denied any wrongdoing and said they would appeal to the Swiss -based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS ).

Dangote truck crushes bus ,five adults, two kids killed

Seven persons have been confirmed dead after a Dangote truck conveying bags of cement rammed into a yellow commercial bus at Tollgate, Ota , along Lagos -Abeokuta Expressway , Ogun State.

The deceased included five adults and two children while 10 persons sustained injuries in the crash which occurred around 11. 30am on Saturday .

Reports learnt that a sienna bus with the number plate , APP 122 CD was also involved in the accident .

It was gathered that there was traffic on the expressway at the time and the truck had a brake failure, forcing the driver to run into the bus in the process .

Following the deaths , angry youths took to the expressway and set ablaze the truck.

Our correspondent learnt that it took the intervention of police and the Olota of Ota , Oba Adeyemi Obalanlege , to pacify the protesters and restored normalcy to the area .

The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps in the state, Clement Oladele, said firefighters assisted in putting out the inferno .

He said , “ The crash involved a total of 17 people made up of six male adults , two male children , eight female adults , and one female child .

The vehicles involved were three , comprising an ash – coloured Dangote truck with no registration number , a yellow Volkswagen bus with registration number, LSR 128 XP and a white Sienna bus with registration number, APP 122 CD.

“ The suspected causes were speeding and mechanical deficiency suspected to be brake failure.

The total number of people killed was seven , made up of two male adults , three female adults, a male child and a female child .

The number of injured persons was 10, comprising four male adults and six female adults . ”

Oladele said the injured victims were rescued to the Ota General Hospital, while the corpses of the dead victims were deposited at the Ifo General Hospital Morgue .

The sector commander commiserated with the relations of the victims , adding that where the crash occurred was a black spot notorious for frequent crashes, which had claimed over 40 lives in the last five years.

He called on motorists especially articulated vehicles to drive cautiously while plying the corridor .

He urged people to desist from taking the law into their hands by resorting to self help and destroying property .

“ There are standard ways of handling issues such as reporting grievances to the appropriate law enforcement agencies , ” he added .

Two persons were burnt to death on the same spot on November 14, 2019 after a fuel – laden tanker had an accident and went up in flames .

At least 17 vehicles and goods estimated at over N 269 m were burnt.

Oladele had said a comprehensive report on the major causes of the frequent crashes at the corridor was prepared by the corps and submitted to the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing , the Ogun State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure and other relevant stakeholders.

“ It (the report ) opined that wholesome traffic reengineering solution that would separate motorised traffic from other non -motorised traffic especially pedestrians and remove all areas of points of traffic conflicts in transit at that major intersection would best prevent fatal road crashes.

“ Apart from filling up the slope , an over head interchange that would allow vehicles in transit connect the various exit points at the old toll gate intersection without interfering with flow of traffic , would be most suitable to prevent gridlock , ” Oladele had stated .

The recommendations in the report had yet to be implemented .
