Hundreds of #EndSARS protesters have barricaded the Kubwa-Zuba expressway, Abuja, grinding traffic to a halt at the capital on Saturday.

While some protesters blocked the Kubwa section of the expansive highway, close to the NNPC junction, others also blocked off the Gwarimpa section causing serious traffic problems in the area.

Our correspondent learnt that the activists had earlier passed through Gado Nasko Way, a major road in Kubwa, before taking over the highway.

The protesters blared music from their cars, danced and chanted slogans demanding police reforms, good governance, and a safer nation.

The action has stranded motorists and commuters on the 10-lane highway for many hours.

No security personnel was seen in the vicinity.

This is happening barely 24 hours after the youths took over the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road, Abuja, forcing residents living in that axis to spend the night in their vehicles.

More so, some prospective travellers missed their flights as the youths paralysed vehicular movement to and from the airport.
