The Nigerian Police this morning Saturday, 13th February, 2021, arrested peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.
Comedian Mr. Macaroni and many others were among the protesters that were thrown into the Police Black Maria Van with their phones seized.
According to reports circulating on social media the arrested were taken from the Adeniji Police station to Ikeja and now to the Panti Police Station in Yaba, Lagos.
They haven’t been given access to their lawyers as at the time of filing this report.
The #OccupyLekkiTollGate is a reaction against the decision by the judicial commission in Lagos that was looking into the allegations that the army and police opened fire on protesters on October 20, 2020. and passed judgement of reopening the Lekki toll gate before the commission had completed its investigation.
The #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest was aimed at demonstrating against the decision which saw Lekki Concession Company take back control of the Lekki tollgate which is the scene of an alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers on October 20, 2020.
