A lot of Lagosians know that traffic on the Island is sometimes caused by lavish events and the wedding reception of Dangote’s daughter at Eko convention center, Victoria Island today sure fits into that category.
Dignitaries, politicians, socialities and more are expected to attend the wedding this evening.
Lagosians, either heading home from work or attempting to go enjoy the start of their weekend, are now advicing one another on social media on how to avoid the traffic that would probably be caused by the event.

Dangote’s daughter’s wedding party in VI today. If you have a friend who owns a boat or helicopter, now is a good time to book your space for the ride home, or wear walking shoes to work. As per, traffic has set agenda for today

Now it all makes sense. I passed VI today and I saw that Eko hotel had mounted a poster right in the middle of the road showing directions to the hotel. I deemed it an odd occurrence but Dangote’s daughter is getting married tomorrow so it all adds up now.

So Eko hotel roundabout is filled up with police because of Dangote’s daughters wedding. Like there are boards at strategic places directing you to Eko hotel, the traffic at VI today would be crazy fam be warned
