Some youths have blocked the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway at the Berger end, setting fire to both sides of the roadway.
“Questions for politicians and Religious Leaders,” read placards held by the youths, who were armed with sticks. What does Nigeria’s future hold? Nigeria’s whole highway system will be shut down. “There is no movement on a national level.”
Our correspondent witnessed armed police officers trying to persuade the demonstrators to leave the road around 3.30 p.m. on Monday.
The demonstration caused traffic congestion on both sides of the freeway and spread to the highway’s connecting routes.
