Motorists and commuters were stranded along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Tuesday when some students, under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students, South-West zone, protested against the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities strike and the fuel scarcity in the country.
The protesters, who blocked both sides of the expressway around the Car Park C, Mowe, Ogun State, carried placards with various inscriptions and sang solidarity songs.
Punch Metro observed that the activities of the protesters grounded traffic with many travellers trapped in the gridlock.
The NANS Chairman in Ogun State, Kehinde Simeon, who spoke on behalf of the students, said the association was giving the Federal Government seven working days to address the ASUU strike and the fuel scarcity.
Simeon threatened that if the government failed to address the issues before the expiration of the ultimatum, students would block all major roads in the South-West.
I have been reporting for several years now and I am very interested in visual news reportage with strong inclusion of photos and video multimedia.
