There was tension as some corps members of the National Youth Service Scheme (NYSC) stormed the Ikeja area of Lagos state to protest after a thief allegedly stole a corps member’s phone.
The protest reportedly lasted over an hour.
According to reports the victim visited the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW in Lagos and someone stole his phone in their office.
The thief was caught but rather than being made to return the phone, it was said that NURTW officials protected the person because he was a staff a staff of the association.
The serving corps members in the state then took to the streets and blocked Ikeja road, insisting that the suspect be produced and handed over to the police.
