The Lagos State Government has announced that all vehicular movement around the Teslim Balogun Stadium will be prohibited from 10am to 10pm today (Tuesday) for the football match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Crocodiles of Lesotho.
The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement, said the closure was necessary to effectively manage the traffic and tighten security at the stadium, assuring that provisions had been made to manage traffic in the area.
“In line with this development, motorists are advised to avoid moving around the stadium from 10am. Traffic approaching Teslim Balogun from Ojuelegba and Alaka/Eric Moore can only pass through the flyover.
“Only vehicles with VVIP stickers or tickets would be allowed to approach the stadium and park. Also vehicles conveying persons with VVIP tickets would be permitted to drive into the Teslim Balogun Stadium,” the statement partly reads.
Oladeinde appealed to motorists cooperate with the LASTMA officials that would be deployed to manage traffic flow.
