Protesters Defy Police, Rejects Reopening Of Lekki Tollgate

Protesters Defy Police, Expresses Displeasure Over Reopening Of Lekki Tollgate

Police have arrested protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate as calls for the reopening of the facility to be suspended gain momentum.

The police had earlier on Friday launched a show-of-force exercise to express its disapproval of the planned protest.

On Saturday, the police picked up anyone they suspected to be at the toll gate for protest.

Despite the heavy presence of police officers at Lekki Tollgate today, some protesters have continued to express displeasure over the reopening of Lekki Tollgate.

An order to reopen the Lekki toll gate by the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry last Saturday spurred the occupy Lekki tollgate movement, with the youth rising to resist the reopening.

The youth argued that the reopening of the tollgate is premature as the investigation into the Lekki shooting incident of the 20th of October 2020, has not been concluded.
