Logistics companies in Lagos on three-day strike to protest touts harassment

July 27, 2020

 1748     230

Some courier and logistics companies in Lagos State are closing shops for three days to protest spiking rates of harassment of their riders by policemen and touts.

An official of Courier Services Association of Lagos (COSAL) told The Guardian on Monday that touts, allegedly working for local governments in the state, are frustrating their operations.

“[The] voluntary withdrawal of our services for three days – Monday to Wednesday – this week is a sign of concern over extortionist agents on the roads, including [local government] councils, VIS, MOT,” the official said.

“We are ready to pay whatever legitimate fees due to the state and Local Government to operate our businesses in Lagos State. We just don’t want harassment from touts for no just cause because they impound our bikes daily and demand payments for documents we already have.”
