The heavy vehicles converged on the state awaiting clearance from Inland Containers. They were not amused by the little or no attention given to them by relevant authorities.
The aggrieved drivers said the whereabouts of their agents remain a mystery, but the Nigeria Customs insist that a large the number of
articulated vehicles were not part of its schedule.
Meanwhile, sources said protests by the drivers may continue for days, if they are not attended to by the relevant authorities. But drivers hope that their situation will be looked into, in earnest.
