Lagos Police warns against protest at Lekki toll gate on Saturday

Hakeem Odumosu, the Lagos Commissioner of Police, has warned that no protest will be allowed to hold at the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday, February 13.

Nigerians have been using the hashtag #OccupyLekkiTollgate to announce plans to stage fresh protests, over plans to reopen the tollgate.

However, another group using the hashtag #DefendLagos, announced plans to hold a counter-protest at the same Lekki tollgate.

Odumosu has now said neither of the two groups would be allowed to hold any protest.

“Allowing both groups to carry out their planned protests will be counter-productive.

“No protest in any guise will be allowed to take place on Saturday 13th February 2021,” Odumosu declared.
