VIDEO: Lagos drivers protest against increasing extortion by touts

Some commerical bus drivers plying the Oshodi-Tollgate route in Lagos State have protested against increasing taxes levied on them by touts, otherwise known as agberos.

The drivers, who decided to embark on strike on Wednesday, said the touts suddenly increased their daily levy from N20,000 to N25,500, while lamenting that they are being overburdened with illegal taxes.

Some of the drivers lamented that whenever they refuse to pay, the agberos would destroy their vehicles.

Some of the drivers were captured in a video currently circulating on social media demanding an end to the extortion.
