Students of the University of Abuja on Monday morning blocked Abuja – Gwagwalada highway, the main expressway into Nigeria’s capital city as they protest against the killing of their colleague.
The students alleged that a wreckless driver had killed a student while he ran over another four students who were seriously injured yesterday.
The protesters blocked both entrance & exit sides of the highway since around 6am, causing traffic gridlocks on the ever-busy Abuja expressway.
They didn’t allow any vehicle to pass the highway but permit passengers to disembark from vehicles & gave them freeway to go about their daily duty. Daily Trust. M
