Some angry Nigerians have blocked the Benin-Ore Highway in Ondo State to register their displeasure over the scarcity of naira notes and fuel scarcity ravaging the nation.
The protest which caused gridlock made travellers plying the route stranded. A cross section of the protesters attributed their actions to the frustrations being faced in the banks and filling stations.
This is coming less than 24-hour after the Ondo State Police Command warned residents against staging protest.
The police command gave the warning following the residents’ plan to stage a protest over the incessant scarcity of fuel and naira notes rocking the country while appealing to residents of the state to desist from such activities.
