“The protest which has impacted the operations of the company in the last one week is on a three-day marathon stage this weekend.

We will continue to monitor the situation and start operations as soon as the road is clear.

“We call on our esteemed commuters to bear with us during this period,” Yekeen said.

He said that the firm’s priority to convey commuters safely to their destinations every day, providing fast, affordable and convenient services to residents had been hindered by the protests.

#ENDSARS Protesters have continued to negatively affect traffic in Lagos as protesters hinder vehicular movements in major parts of the state causing gridlock.
