Lagos State Government said it will close all vehicular movement around the Teslim Balogun Stadium, venue of the live football match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Crocodiles of Lesotho for 12 hours Tuesday.

The Commissioner of Transportation Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who announced this on Monday, said the closure was necessary in order to effectively manage traffic and tighten security at the Stadium.

Oladeinde appealed to motorists that use the corridor frequently to cooperate with the LASTMA officials that will be deployed to manage the traffic flow as it will ease movement and minimize expected inconveniences.
