Hundred of travelers were subjected to serious hardship on Monday as major roads in the country were blocked by #EndSARS protesters demonstrating against police brutality and extrajudicial killings in the country.

Some of the roads include Benin-Lagos highway, Lagos-Ibadan, Asabe-Benin, Keffi-Abuja, Gwagwalada-Abuja, Ogun-Lagos, among others.

The development subjected both residents and travellers to serious hardship as they were stranded for hours on the roads.
