Lagos traffic

Commercial drivers on Wednesday protested around the Agege-Ogba-Berger axis of Lagos against alleged extortion by officials of the Lagos State task force.

The development left passengers stranded around the area.

The protesters barricaded the road at the popular Omole junction while some of them held weapons in a bid to resist further arrests.

They also prevented drivers who attempted to convey passengers to their destinations.
