According to unconfirmed reports making rounds online and on social media, some suspected militants allegedly blocked the popular Benin-Lagos expressway this afternoon. 
 
It was gathered that the blockage which delayed mototorists went on for close to two hours as no security operative showed up to challenge them within that time. 
 
An eyewitness, Ehiwario Jude, who reported the story online said; "The Self acclaimed militant group mounted a road block stopping vehicles from moving, with the excuse that they are playing football on the road until the government pays them." 
 
 
The eyewitness however noted that the Nigerian Army later came to intervene and free the road for the frustrated motorists plying the expressway.
