The removal of fuel subsidy in Nigeria has sparked a protest among some commercial motorcyclists, popularly known as Okada riders, in Garoua, Cameroon.
The Okada riders, who depend on Nigerian fuel for their businesses, are unhappy with the increase in the price of petrol in their country.
In a viral video on the internet, the Okada riders were seen chanting and carrying placards in a mixture of Fulfulde and French languages. They blamed President Bola Tinubu for removing fuel subsidy and causing hardship for them and their customers.
According to earlier reports, the fuel subsidy removal in Nigeria has affected the price of petrol in neighboring countries that also import fuel from Nigeria.
The viral video has confirmed the claim that a large portion of the fuel subsidy funds in Nigeria were being used to subsidize the economies of other countries.
The video was shared on Twitter by EON Intelligence, a security and intelligence platform. Watch the video below:
