There is tangible anxiety in Bida town, Niger state, as tanker drivers have blocked all of the town’s key exits, preventing motorists from entering and exiting.

Tanker drivers have stopped all major routes in town to protest the state’s poor road conditions, particularly the Bida-Lapai-Lambata Road.

Passengers bound for several states in the East, South, North West, North East, and North Central are currently stranded.

As a result of the development, hoodlums now extort money from commercial motorcyclists by charging between N20 and N50 for access to the minor roads left by tanker drivers.

The situation is worrisome, particularly in the Esso area of Bida Town, where all vehicles have stopped moving.

Residents of the town have urged the state governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, to intervene as soon as possible before the situation worsens.
