Long stretches of public roads in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, have been blocked due to a wedding involving the daughter of a former state governor whose mother happens to be a Justice of the country’s Supreme Court.

Both Madera Road and a stretch of Aguiyi Ironsi Road were blocked and manned by armed and fierce-looking soldiers and policemen due to the wedding of Njideka, the second daughter of former Rivers State Governor, Dr. Peter Odili, at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in the elitist Maitama District of the Federal Capital Territory.

Njideka’s mother, Mary is a Justice of the Nigerian apex court while Justice Chioma Iheme-Nwosu, the mother of her beau, Uzoma Iheme Nwosu, is a Judge of the Court of Appeal.

A large portion of Aguiyi Ironsi Road was also converted into a parking lot by the wedding guests.

As a result, motorists and Abuja residents going in that direction were made to park faraway and trek to their various destinations.

The roads were still blocked as at 12:30p.m. when News Express left the area.

Osita Udeora, a media practitioner whose office is located in the neighbourhood, told News Express that such inconveniences have become a routine.

“It is worse when President Goodluck Jonathan is passing through the area or has anything to do around here,” he said. “On one occasion, I had to trek from Transcorp Hilton Hotel (a very long distance) to my office because of road closure,” Udeora lamented.
