Protesters took to the streets of Lagos, Tuesday morning, protesting against the removal of fuel subsidy by the federal government on Jan 1. 2012.
The protesters gathered at the Yaba office of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, from where they commenced the march through the streets of Lagos, Tuesday morning.
Since the subsidy removal last Sunday, commuters had to contend with over 100 per cent hike in transport fares as fuel price ranged from N140.50 to N200. Price differentials were noticed in many petrol stations within the same town across the country.
