The protest is already crippling economic activities as many persons were seen stranded without means of transport to places of work. It is also affecting school children.

The tricycle riders say the economy is unfavourable and the government is bringing more hardship on them.

The State Chairman of the Tricycle Riders Association, Umaru Barau told Channels Television that the protest is illegal as they are not aware of it.

However, he pledged to grant an interview after they met with security agencies and other stakeholders.
