A woman on Friday gave details of how she lost a pregnancy after spending seven hours inside traffic between NASFAT and Berger on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, a journey that is not supposed to be more than 20 minutes.
She added that her son who was also in the car had difficulty in breathing at a moment during the trip and described the condition as 'asthmatic."
The woman, whose name is Alimi Oluwakemi Aduke, with the Twitter handle @glitzaffair, disclosed this while reacting to the gridlock that was experienced in the axis between Berger, Alausa, Ikeja and other parts of Lagos State on Thursday night where motorists said they spent over five hours in the traffic.

According to the woman, she was on a journey driving to Lagos and on getting to NASFAT area of the expressway, she saw a gridlock with no sign of improvement.
She added that it took her some seven hours to drive from the area to Berger in Lagos, adding that in the process of driving for such a long period of time, she later found out that she had lost her pregnancy.
She added that her son in the car also developed breathing problem which she described as asthma, wondering when the unnecessary traffic bottleneck on the stretch h of the road up to Berger, Alausa and Ikeja would stop.
