Young Nigerians protesting police brutality in Lagos barricaded the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Monday.
They also blocked all major roads around the State Government Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, Monday afternoon.
Monday’s protests had youth in their hundreds gathered at different locations in the state to demand police reform after the proscription of the police unit.
The young people moved out in groups along the Secretariat Road in Alausa, and later gathered and blocked the expressway.

The protests started in Lagos on Thursday, as Nigerian youth took to the streets to air their frustration.
On Friday, the protesters took off from the Lagos State House of Assembly at Alausa, and proceeded to Allen roundabout.
