The protest was about the refusal of Federal Government to constitute a substantive board for the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

They are also protesting the kidnapping of Timothy Igbifa by unidentified armed masked men on Tuesday.

According to the group, the 30-day ultimatum given the Buhari government expired at midnight today.

So far, the protests have been peaceful, except for the traffic gridlock on the East-West Road.

The Ijaw Youth Council had earlier announced today’s protest.

President of the IYC Igbifa also gave all oil multinationals seven days to evacuate their employees from oil platforms in the region ahead of the protest.
