Lagos - Drivers of trucks and trailers in Lagos state have yet to comply with the state government’s order, restricting movement of trailers and long vehicles on roads between 6am and 9pm, Punch reports.

The directive was reinforced in the wake of three persons who were killed on September 2 after the container a truck plying Ojuelegba Bridge skidded off and landed on the moving car conveying the victims.
