Nigeria's trade unions say they are suspending protests for two days to allow more talks with the government.

The announcement comes on the fifth day of a general strike over the removal of a fuel subsidy, which has caused fuel prices and transport fares to double.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets, while several people have died in clashes with police.

The unions said Thursday's talks with the president were "fruitful" and would continue on Saturday.

The main union organisations jointly announced there would be no mass rallies or protests over the weekend and flights would resume, enabling delegates to travel to the capital, Abuja for talks.

The oil workers unions had said they would cut oil production in Africa's biggest exporter, starting from Sunday.

The protest was really great for revising fuel price to N97 per litre
