#EndSARS: Massive Gridlocks in Lagos as People Protest
Nigerian youths proceeded into the roads to express their grievances on the disbandment of SARS and police brutality. This was as a result of their voices being futile on social media.
Asides, the third mainland bridge closure which has been causing massive traffic jams for motorists, protesters barricaded major roads like, Ozumba Mbadiwe, International airport road, and Ikorodu road which lead to some massive traffic in the city. You thought Lagos traffic was bad? How about spending 5 hours at the Lekki toll gate? Yes, it was that massive.
If you are not Aladdin with the flying mat, you might as well be sleeping on the road more often due to the gridlock until the protest subsides
.The placard-carrying protesters with inscriptions like #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality are willing to go on with the protests unless the government listens to their cries. Until then, some of these motorists passing the major roads in Lagos will have to prepare for more massive traffic jams.
