Meanwhile, young Nigerians protesting police brutality in Lagos barricaded the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Monday.
They also blocked all major roads around the State Government Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, Monday afternoon.
Monday’s protests had youth in their hundreds gathered at different locations in the state to demand police reform after the proscription of the police unit.
The young people moved out in groups along the Secretariat Road in Alausa, and later gathered and blocked the expressway.
They were seen wielding different banners with loud inscriptions calling for the ban of the Police unit.
