One of the leaders of the protest, Prince Okereke explained that the protest was staged over the "bad state of the road".

"We have sent a message to the federal government and the minister of Niger Delta Affairs, it is unbelievable, even if we are a minority in Nigeria, we don't have those to speak for us but God will speak for us".
