At least not less than five hundred youths in Apapa have indicated readiness to join in the ongoing nationwide #EndSARS protest against police brutality.
This inevitably means that movement of vehicles including trucks would be restricted for as many days as the protest would last
As a result, cargoes going in and out of the port would be severely affected leading to congestion inside the port.
Speaking with our correspondent, the Patron, United Apapa Youth Forum, Victor Colombus told nigeriamaritime360 that the youth are ready to block the major roads leading to the port.
According to him, the youth would converge at the Area B Police Station where the agitation will commence.
Recall, that, not less than 100 trucks enter the Lagos port on a daily basis to either lift cargo or return empty containers.
In view of the Tuesday protest by Apapa youth, trucks and other vehicles would not be able to gain entrance into the area which will lead to congestion and eventual economic waste.
The Patron said : “We have been strategizing ever since the beginning of this struggle; but we felt we should consider how to take care of those that will participate.
“We will converge at Area B Police Station then we will ensure that all entry points to seaports will be barricaded.
He also revealed that Apapa is strategic and youths in the community should support others across the country to ensure demands of #Soro Soke are achieved.
