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.”
The protest against the notorious police unit got to a climax last week, with youth marching in several major cities across Nigeria.
On Sunday, Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police, announced the dissolution of SARS, adding that major reforms will be carried out in the Nigeria Police.
