The current administration of president Muhammadu Buhari has earlier stated in the beginning of his tenure as the president elect of Nigeria that the second Niger bridge is part of his main targets before his term runs out of which the work has started off ever since then.

Significant work is believed to have been done in the 11.9km stretch of the ongoing construction which is believed that over 40% of the bridge has been completed. Julius Berger construction company being the contractor in charge will be through with the bridge in two years.

The Lagos state government has announced the reopening of the third mainland bridge that has been closed since last week Thursday.

Though, the opening of the bridge comes earlier beyond the stipulated time the bridge was initially set to be opened.

It will be recalled that the Lagos state government, in collaboration with the Federal Government, had temporarily shut the bridge for the test with the closure initially scheduled to last from midnight of Thursday last week to midnight of Sunday. It was, however, reopened at 5:00 pm on Sunday.

According to the statement by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Dr Taiwo Salaam, the decision to reopen the bridge earlier than announced followed the completion of the exercise by engineers. The closure of the bridge on Thursday last week was supervised by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, and officials of relevant government agencies. Following the closure, LASTMA deployed 650 personnel to all alternative routes to the Third Mainland Bridge, to ensure the free flow of traffic on the roads.

LASTMA’s General Manager, Mr Olawale Musa, had said that the agency was aware of the volume of traffic on the Third Mainland Bridge and the consequences of diverting such huge traffic on the alternative routes during the period. He had asked the officers on duty to show compassion to motorists, especially those that were unfamiliar with the alternative routes and other roads in the metropolis. Mr Musa also urged motorists and commuters to be patient and cooperative with the traffic officers, to ensure a free flow of traffic on all alternative routes during the closure.

Meanwhile, with the successful completion of the maintenance testing of the bridge it is expected that the bridge might be closed for days in future time when the Federal government get ready to start the rehabilitation process.

She's US based, married with 3 kids. She lives in Texas.

Her husband is Tunde who works or used to work with Access Bank in Lagos. She got involved with another guy in Nigeria and they both got involved in series of adulterous activities. Her lover, an older guy as well swindled or collected over N10m from her. 


She went to arrest him only for him to publish nude pictures of them together in order to prove his innocence to the Police that whatever happened between both of them was consensual, that he's not a fraudster as claimed by the married woman. The blackmail from the man got to her husband and this compelled the husband to conduct a DNA test on all his 3 children which later turned out that they are not all his kids after all. Those kids belong to someone else. On Saturday, 9th of June, 2018, the woman drove her truck to the bridge, parked her Ford SUV van on the 3rd Mainland Bridge and jumped inside the lagoon on a suicide mission which is a resultant effect of the blackmail.

Bad market/bad business/dirty game.  She's gone and the kids are left in the hands of strangers to be taken care of.
