The many supporters of Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, have stormed the streets of Lekki in Lagos for a rally.
They have now grounded traffic activities in Lekki, as they defied police orders and campaigned at Lekki toll-gate.
The ‘Obidients’ as they are fondly called, gathered on Saturday morning at the toll-gate despite heavy police presence on the ground.
The PUNCH correspondent noticed private and commercial bus drivers finding alternative routes out of the traffic on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, as the traffic was almost at a stand still.
Speaking with a commercial driver, who opted for all his passengers to get another bus, he said, “Obidient people are campaigning at the toll gate, I have been in this traffic for too long, I’m going to turn back at Jakande roundabout. I wouldn’t be heading to Lekki Phase 1 again.”
