Lagos to Onitsha with ease

By Tony Onyima

Concerned by the increasing complaints about the pains of Nigerians plying the Lagos-Onitsha route, I decided to seize an opportunity on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 to find out the real situation.

For complete experience, I traveled with one of the transporters at Jibowu. After an excruciating traffic snarl along Redeemed Church corridor, we finally commenced the journey to Onitsha at 10:30am.

By the time we arrived at the Asaba end of the River Niger Bridge, I had counted 60 checkpoints. I was painstakingly taking notes and few shots. The checkpoints were manned at various points by soldiers, police, customs, SARS, FRSC or a combination.

Below are the locations of the checkpoints to guide your next trip from Lagos to Onitsha.
