When the ABS visited the scene, the lorries blocked the road such that no vehicle coming from Enugu could pass through the Arroma flyover or the down part of it, thereby causing heavy traffic in the area which also affected other routes that are connected to the Enugu/Onitsha expressway.

According to people at the scene, the incident was caused by the action of some security officials operating at the Stanel axis of the road who shot two tyres of a Lorry whose driver could not give them five hundred naira as demanded from him at the checkpoint, but rather pleaded to give them three hundred naira as he did not have five hundred naira on him.
