Commercial bus drivers plying the Ikorodu Road, left commuters on Monday with no other choice than to trek to their various destinations.

This followed the protest by the drivers over what they called extortion by men of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences Unit (Task Force) and Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).

The drivers parked their buses and ensured full compliance of the service withdrawal.

Many commuters heading to Jibowu, Maryland, Ikeja, axis had to trek long distances in the early hours of Monday.

A minibus driver told The Nation they were protesting daily seizure of their buses and extortion by officials of the agencies over frivolous traffic rules violation.
