#OccupyLekkiTollGate: FG vows to stop fresh protest at Lekki toll gate

Federal Government has declared that it would inhibit any fresh #EndSARS protest at Lekki Toll Gate.

Nigeria Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed made this known while speaking in Abuja, condemning the second wave of #EndSARS protest.

He warned the protesters to desist from engaging in another protest, that all security agencies have been put in place to dislodge and disallow any further rally at the Lekki Plaza.

The Minister said: ” Any further resort to violence in the name of #EndSARS will not be tolerated this time.

” The security agents are ready for any eventuality. A situation in which six soldiers and 37 policemen were murdered in cold blood by hoodlums will not repeat itself.

” The attack, looting, and razing of 269 private and public property will not happen again. The killing of 57 civilians will not be re-enacted.”

” No government anywhere will allow a repeat of the kind of destruction, killing and maiming wrought by the hijackers of #EndSARS protests last year.

” After all, only one policeman – (plus four others) – was killed in the invasion of the US Capitol in January. Yet, the FBI has continued to hunt down and prosecute the perpetrators. No life is more important than the other.”

The information minister further reveals that some of those planning the protest are not Nigerians.

” We know that many of those who have been loudest on social media in advertising the plan to reconvene in Lagos on Saturday are not even in Nigeria.

“They are elsewhere around the world fanning the embers of violence and inciting gullible people back home. No one should fall for their antics.”
