Motorists and commuters were trapped during the protest at the Nyanya section of the ever busy Abuja-Keffi expressway.
An eyewitness confirmed that, “in the early hours of today aggrieved youths in Nyanya blockade the road because of a decomposing body of a young man that was found under the Nyanya bridge”
According to the eyewitness, the angry youths who blocked the road expressed disappointment over the failure of the FCT authorities to evacuate the body which has been lying there for some days now.
Efforts by Law enforcement agents deployed to restore normalcy and to ensure the re-opening of the road has been met with stiff resistance by the angry youths.
