It was gathered that Motorists and pedestrians along the Garrison Flyover in Port Harcourt were shocked to see an electronic billboard mounted along the road play the 60 seconds pornographic video.

A motorist, Kingston Ekwere, who saw the pornography, said it caused traffic to hold up around the flyover.

“I parked by the Garrison flyover waiting for it to get to my turn to load my car, when I saw people looking at the billboard passionately and laughing. I immediately looked towards the direction of attention, and behold, and it was a display of sex tape. The whole flyover went agog as everybody, motorists and people working, had to stop to watch the film as many condemned it and some youths were happy viewing it.” he narrated.
