Many commuters were stranded on Monday as the Joint Drivers’ Welfare Association of Nigeria (JDWAN) commenced a seven-day strike over “multiple and excessive extortion” by the Parks Management Committee headed by Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.

Members of the group include commercial vehicles popularly known as Danfos, and mini-buses locally known as Korope.

There were large crowds at scores of bus stops as commuters jostled for a few available buses who hiked transport fares by up to 100%.

While some commuters grudgingly paid the high fares to connect to their destinations, others took to trekking long distances. The situation, coupled with the lingering fuel scarcity, worsened movement in Lagos.
