Usually the tricycle riders would carry 3 to 4 passengers in order to get more payments considering the high price of gasoline and other logistics involved in the business of keke riding. They complained that if they carry only 2 passengers on a trip that will leave them with almost nothing at the end of the days work.

9News Nigeria correspondent in Asaba witnessed the uproar and reported that the whole of Nnebisi Road environs were taken over by the mob thereby hindering free movements in the area.
