Lagos drivers protest extortion

Due to claimed extortion by the administration of car parks and garages, Lagos drivers have threatened a boycott of the roads starting on October 31, 2022, under the auspices of the Joint Drivers Welfare Association of Nigeria.

JDWAN demanded an end to what it described as excessive extortion and harassment of drivers at various bus stops, garages, and parks in Lagos in a statement, and urged the government to step in. It also called for a seven-day mass protest and a complete boycott.

They identified the alleged extortion locations as Badagry, Mile 2, Seme, Ogijo, Ikorodu, Ikeja, Agric Bus Stop, and numerous other locations throughout the state, alleging that they paid as much as N5000 and N7100 in some cases.

Akintade Abiodun, Opeyemi Suleiman, Ajimatanarareje Feyisayo, and Taofeek Hassan, who are JDWAN’s National Leader, Chairman, Secretary, and Assistant Secretary, respectively, all signed the statement.
