Our correspondent watched as some commuters placed some of their luggage on the metal net while some food vendors equally placed their bowls on them.

Further checks also revealed that the nuts used to fasten the pillars of the metal nets to the ground had also got rusted.

A trader who sells alcoholic drinks in the park, Lola Omololu, however, said the same fate awaits the other metal nets.

She said, “The remaining parts that are still standing may likely fall off like the ones you see on the floor. Once the foundation of the pillars gets weak like the other ones, it will start to damage gradually and before you know it, it is already on the floor.”

A pedestrian who identified himself only as Isaac called on the state government to remove the damaged ones and replace them.

He said, “The purpose of the barricade has been defeated because people now have to step on it to cross the road. Aside from being erected to prevent people from crossing the road indiscriminately, the barricade also adds to the beauty of what was done here by the former governor. But that is no longer there. The sight of the metal iron on the floor looks like the government no longer show concern. They need to remove and replace them. It is already becoming an eyesore.”
