The Lagos stretch of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway was on lockdown on Sunday night, with passengers finding it impossible to enter the city, SaharaReporters can report. A commuter who was stranded on that road told SaharaReporters that street urchins set fire on both sides of the road in protest of the killing of an innocent resident around Punch Estate, Mangoro, by a stray bulllet from men of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) who came in search of a prominent Yahoo boy in the area. The commuter quoted a witness of the incident as saying other boys in the area angered by the killing started the fire on both lanes of the road; and whenever it went down, they reignited it. As of 8:15pm, the gridlock had reached Iyana-Ipaja on the side towards Oshodi and PWD on the side towards Mangoro. Police or traffic management officials had not been sighted at the scene of the fire as of press time.  CORRIGENDUM: SaharaReporters initially reported that the ‘Yahoo boy’ was the one killed. This story has been edited to reflect our new findings.
