#EndSARS protesters on Friday caused traffic gridlock on Third Mainland Bridge after they partially shut the Iyana-Oworo-Oworonshoki section of the bridge.

Many passengers were stranded on the road while commuters drove against the traffic because of the development.

The protesters, who arrived at the bridge at about 6:00 p.m., sent another group to block the Berger section of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
