Aggrieved protesters have shut down the ever-busy Benin-Ore-Lagos expressway over the gruesome murder of a yet-to-be identified young lady,

The lady was said to have been raped and murdered by suspected Fulani Herdsmen who have been terrorising the community.

Akelicious reports that the protesters in their numbers, on Tuesday afternoon, blocked the popular Okada junction, near Benin, Edo State capital.

Our correspondent, who happens to be among the road users currently stranded, reports that the aggrieved residents are currently on rampage and have chased out Hausa traders in retaliation.

Akelicious reports that a Northern man who had his wares (Indomie, Suya etc) in a nearby kiosk, also got a share of the aggrieved residents actions. His wares were thrown off and given a hot chase but managed to get away.

According to an eyewitness, even the security men who were mobilized to the scene could not manage the situation.

She said the aggrieved residents equally resisted a VIP who had wanted to pass through the blocked road with his team of escorts.

“Fulani Herdsmen allegedly raped and butchered a lady earlier today at the Okada junction.

“Government officials wanted to pass with police officers but the youths reacted violently.

“They are now attacking Hausa ‘mishai’ (bread & egg) sellers,” she added.

When contacted by Akelicious, Spokesman for the Edo State Police Command, DSP Chidi Nwabuzor, said the force is yet to be briefed.

As at the time of filing this report, the roads are still blocked with many road users stranded, as protest continues.
