There was a mild drama at about 4pm on Tuesday when a mentally ill man stood in the middle of the road at Maryland Junction, Lagos-Ikorodu Expressway, impeding traffic flow.

The man, who was wearing dirtytraditional attire and black sandals, obstructed motorists going towards the Ikorodu end of the expressway, ordering them to give him right of way.

Our correspondent, who was at the scene, saw the man block the free flow of traffic for about 10 minutes, until a combined team of policemen and officials of the Lagos State Transport Management Agency who were at the junction a few metres away tried to chase him away.

As the man refused to leave the middle of the road, one of the police officers ran towards him and tried to scare him witha baton, but the man kept dodging himwith a black bag he was holding.

However, the policeman, afterseveral attempts, successfully chased him away from the middle of the road.

Fascinated passers-by and motorists stood to watch the scene.
