A video of a major blockade on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway by protesters over the scarcity of the Nigerian naira has gone viral, sparking widespread concern over the worsening economic situation in the country.

The footage shows hundreds of demonstrators blocking the highway with makeshift barricades, causing a massive traffic jam and bringing movement to a standstill.

The protesters can be seen burning tyres and chanting slogans, demanding urgent action from the government to address the chronic shortage of the national currency.

According to eyewitnesses, the demonstration was highly disruptive, with many commuters stranded for hours as a result. The blockade reportedly lasted for several hours before dispersing due to the lack of police response.

The video has since spread rapidly on social media, with many Nigerians expressing solidarity with the demonstrators and criticizing the government’s slow response to the economic crisis.

The naira has been in short supply for months, with the central bank struggling to maintain a stable exchange rate and inflation soaring to record levels.

The Lagos-Ibadan expressway is one of the busiest highways in Nigeria and a key route for transportation of goods and services between Lagos and other parts of the country. The blockade is just the latest in a series of protests and demonstrations across the country in response to the worsening economic situation.

The lack of police response to the protest has raised questions about the government’s commitment to addressing the concerns of its citizens.

The viral video has put a spotlight on the urgent need for decisive action to address the root causes of the naira scarcity and alleviate the suffering of millions of Nigerians.
