LCC had in December 2020, appealed to the panel to allow it to take over the plaza for repair and insurance claims. This was declined by the panel since investigations into the unfortunate incident that led to the closure was still being investigated.

At the resumed hearing of the panel today February 6, the chairman, Justice Doris Okwuobi, granted the request of LCC and handed the toll plaza to them.
