According to reports, the crisis started at around 2AM Tuesday morning after some operatives of the EFCC stormed the houses of some of the youths, seizing several cars and making some arrests.
Their operation was however foiled as a lot of youths trooped out in the midnight to block roads out for the EFCC operatives and the cars they seized.
In a video circulating online, it was shown that the en masse protest saw the ‘boys’ retrieve their cars from being seized by the EFCC. Watch the video below:
