The Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway is currently on lockdown, with passengers finding it impossible to enter the city.
According to reports, street thugs set fire on both sides of the road in protest of the killing of a prominent Yahoo boy around Punch Estate, Mangoro, by men of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS).
The commuter quoted a witness of the incident as saying other boys in the area angered by the killing started the fire on both lanes of the road; and whenever it went down, they reignited it.
As of 8:15pm, the gridlock had reached Iyana-Ipaja on the side towards Oshodi and PWD by Mangoro.
No law enforcement personnel was on sight at the scene as the protest lasted.
