Kenya’s Hossei and Ethiopia’s Debebe Ethosa came in second and third respectively, while Emmanuel Gyang , the first Nigerian to cross the finish line came in 7th place.
The 20,000 participants started the race from the National Stadium in Surulere, BUT not all partakers could make it up to the finish line – Eko Atlantic City in Victoria Island – as majority backed out before the 3rd mainland bridge.
😂😂LOL! See if there’s an athlete stuck in front of your house!
