Ondo youths shutdown Benin-Ore road

A group of youths, under the auspices of United Actions for Democracy(UAD)  from the south senatorial district of Ondo state shutdown the Benin/ore Lagos highway in protest of over ten yearsofpower outage in the entire southern senatorial district of the state.

The youths barricaded the road thereby paralysing socioeconomic activities in Ore and its environs.

Many travelers were stranded in the traffic caused by the protest which lasted for several hours.
The youths who were armed with placards with various inscriptions issued a fourteen-day ultimatum to the government both state and federal to address the situation.
The leader of the aggrieved protesters, Kunle Ajayi said it is disheartening that six council areas are languishing in total darkness without government intervention.
