Protesters in Benin, Edo State, are currently trending online after it was reported that they blocked a highway to cook Sunday lunch.
Protests against the activities of disbanded SARS took a new dimension in Benin City as the demonstrators in their thousands converted part of the road under the pedestrian bridge by the University of Benin Main Gate into a kitchen as they cooked and ate jollof rice turning the protest into the carnival-like affair.
The protesters made a fire with firewood and placed a large pot on it. Other protesters who weren’t cooking carried on with the protest. Some stayed on the overhead bridge, waiting for the food to get done.
