Protesters clamouring for the scrapping of the now-defunct Federal Anti Special Robbery Squad on Monday blocked the entrance to the Murtala Muhammed International, Airport, Lagos.
The protesters marched all the way from the Airport Road and converged at the airport’s access plaza, forming a human chain wall, thereby preventing people from either entering or leaving the airport.
They later allowed vehicular movement into the airport for only 10 minutes.
Our correspondent at the scene of the protest noticed that the blockade of the road has led to traffic gridlock, with most motorists stuck on the road as at 11:58am.
Some motorists were seen turning back towards the airport.
The protest is ongoing despite the announcement of the disbandment of the F-SARS unit of the Nigeria Police Unit by Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, on Sunday.
The unit was disbanded after a week of sustained protests across the country by Nigerians, especially the youths, demanding an end to the brutality, extortion and extra-judicial killings allegedly perpetrated by SARS operatives.
