Students of the University of Abuja, on Monday morning, blocked the Abuja – Gwagwalada highway, the main expressway into the Abuja International Airport, as they protest against the killing of their colleague.

The students, alleged that a reckless driver had killed a student, while he ran over another four students, who were seriously injured.

The protesters blocked both entrance and exit sides of the highway, since around 6 am, causing major traffic gridlocks on the ever-busy Abuja expressway.

They did not allow any vehicle to pass the highway, but permitted passengers to disembark from vehicles, and gave them freeway to go about their daily duties.
