Third Mainland bridge Lagos

This rumour was triggered by a video from channels TV that surfaced online showing faults on the bridge. However, it has been confirmed that the video was from 2019 when the bridge was scheduled for maintenance.

However, a statement issued by the Director of Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Works and Housing, Mrs Boade Akinola, on Tuesday in Abuja, noted that Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Engineer Olukayode Popoola, had found the claims to be false.

The statement read, “The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Engr Olukayode Popoola, has debunked insinuations making the rounds in social media that the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos has "opened up and shaking" and, therefore, not safe to vehicular traffic
saying the claim was both false and unfounded.

"The control said after giving an on the spot report that he personally drove along the bridge without noticing any opening or experiencing any shaking as contained in the social media report, advised members of the public, especially commuters, to ignore the rumour, as the bridge which is receiving regular attention along with others across the country is safe for use."
