A violent protest erupted around Wuse Market bridge half an hour ago and is fast spreading to other parts of Abuja.
The protesters are said to be blocking vehicles and harassing motorists driving around the market, the largest in the Nigerian capital.
The protest has spread to Berger, a major transit point in Abuja with thousands of motorists and commuters stranded.
According to unconfirmed reports, the reason for the protests is due to the fact that a taxi driver was killed by a task force in the market on Wednesday morning.
More details to follow shortly.
