The protest started at Iyana Ipaja through Abule-Egba to Sango Ota old toll gate area of Ogun state.

Some of the protesters who spoke with reporters said  the new traffic law was capable of sending them out of business.

An okada operator who said he plies Oshodi to Sango old toll gate area said the law will make him jobless and he does not want to join criminal gangs.
