Motorcycle operators have blocked off Boundary Road, a street that separates Abuja from Nasarawa state, to protest the death of a colleague.

Unidentified yet, the dead motorcycle operator was killed in a hit-and-run on Sunday, it's been said.

Tuesday morning, motorcycle operators vowed not to work, conveying passengers to Nyanya-Abuja expressway.

They also stopped every working motorcycle, deflating tyres.

Fights have erupted in the aftermath after they deflated the tyres of a cycle owner on his way to work.

Their protest and blockade are expected to go as far as Masaka, several kilometres off Abuja’s border with Nasarawa State. (Daily Trust)
