The youths converged in Akure, the in Ondo State capital to protest against the sudden hikes.
The youths, who besieged the main roads of the state capital under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, were seen chanting solidarity songs to condemn the action of the federal government.
According to the youths, the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government of Buhari has unleashed more hardship on Nigerian People than any other past government.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Kowe Odunayo, Coordinator of NANS Zone D, said the hike in both the petrol price and electricity bills were sheer wickedness on the part of the government.
