Passengers in the Kano metropolis have been stranded following the commencement of an indefinite strike by tricycle riders, otherwise known as Adaidaita Sahu, in the state on Monday.

They were on strike to resist the N100 daily tax enforced by the state government through the Kano State Roads and Traffic Agency (KAROTA) among other issues.

Newsmen report that most middle-class commuters going to their workplaces and students going to school have resorted to trekking to reach their destinations.

The State Government had, on Sunday, however, unveiled plans to float a transportation company with 200 buses before the end of 2021.
