Commercial drivers on Wednesday protested against alleged extortion by officials of the Lagos State task force.
The protest left many passengers stranded along the Agege-Ogba-Berger axis of Lagos.
As of 12.14 pm, gridlock had begun to pile up along the route with many passengers trekking long distances.
Some of the drivers held weapons in a bid to resist further arrests.
They also attacked their colleagues who attempted to convey passengers and dislodge others.
The protesters barricaded the road at the popular Omole junction.
