That Owode Elede is a death trap. The state government should do something as lots of lives have been lost in recent times. The problem has to do with the middle path of the road which is too narrow and confusing for drivers to negotiate once they are already on that particular spot. From what the residents told me, they said the government failed to attend to their complaints about series of accidents that has been happening on that Owode Elede road just opposite the canal. This is one out of many accidents after 2 days the government will not do anything. God help motorists plying that route.
