Some aggrieved residents in the Ore area of Ondo State, on Tuesday, staged a protest along the Ore-Benin Expressway, to lament the naira and fuel scarcity causing hardship to Nigerians.

Travellers plying the popular expressway were left stranded along the route as the protest caused gridlock for hours.

Speaking during the demonstration, one of the protesters, said the recent hardship ravaging the country is quite alarming.

“We are protesting to send a message to the government, that we the masses are suffering,
” he said.

The protest is coming despite a warning from the Ondo Police Command that residents should steer clear of any form of protest.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Oyeyemi Oyediran, said “the Command is aware of the agendas of the residents to stage a protest in order to air their anger.”

“He appealed to residents of the state to desist from such activities. Security agents have been notified to ensure the safety of residents and apprehend offenders of the law.”

The persistent protests across the country have prompted some police commands such as Lagos, and Ondo to issue warning to residents to desist from any form of violence.

The Central Bank of Nigeria December last year redesigned all major naira notes and the affected denominations are N100, N200, N500, and N1000.
