#EndSARS: Passengers miss flights as protesters block access to Lagos Airport

The Murtala Muhammed Airport has become a no go area as the #EndSARs protesters blocked all the roads leading to the number one gateway airport as early as 7 am today in continuation of the over one-week protest across the country.

Many passengers missed their flights just as some cancelled theirs while those who left for the airport as early 4 am were the lucky ones to escape from the crisis to meet up with their scheduled flights.

The protesters in their hundreds marched through the Oshodi/Mafoluku axis with the intent to access the international wing of the airport through the tollgate but could not prevent vehicles from driving into the airport.

It is the same story at the Ikeja axis where protesters from Computer Village/Medical Road, Awolowo Way and Maryland created serious gridlock with no movement which made it almost impossible for air travellers and other airport users to enter the airport. Many airport workers were seen trekking to the airport.

A worker at the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) who spoke to the Tribune Online declared; “I have been stranded on the road for more than 1hr 30 minutes now, no movement from Ajao axis.
