Hundreds of Lagosians protesting the high handedness of the police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), have laid siege at the Lekki toll gate, along the Lekki-Epe Expressway.
The protesters grounded vehicular traffic along the expressway to a halt.
Several residents who have to access the toll gate to get to work said they had returned home because of the massive traffic.
A resident of the Jakande area who left for work at 7 a.m. said she returned home after an hour because “there was no road to pass.”
Another resident who declined to say his name told he had to go through the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge to get to work.
