Some traders on Monday blocked a section of the Abuja airport expressway over the planned demolition of the Gosa market.

Gosa is about 20 minutes drive to the airport. The market serves the needs of residents in areas located on the airport road.

Speaking with TheCable, a motorist who simply identified himself as Abu said he was in the gridlock for over three hours.

Abu said some hoodlums also used the gridlock as an opportunity to extort motorists. He said they damaged the cars of those who did not cooperate.

“Some of the boys who tried to extort driver broke the rear mirror and some windscreen,” he said.

TheCable learnt that a similar incident occurred on Saturday after officials of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) went to the market.

Security operatives had been deployed in the scene as of the time of filing this report.
