‘Don’t Flout COVID-19 Rules, Block Roads’: Lagos Warns Lekki Toll Protesters

The Lagos state government on Thursday warned protesters planning to converge at the Lekki toll gate on Saturday to desist from flouting COVID-19 regulations or block roads.

The protests were scheduled after the Lagos state judicial panel decided to hand-over the keys to the toll gate back to the Lekki Concession Company.

Collection of fees at the toll-gate had been suspended since the #EndSARS protests which culminated into a bloody shooting on October 20 by military officials.

While some protesters are defending the decision to reopen the toll-gate, others want it reviewed.

“Our attention is drawn to the planned protest scheduled for Saturday February 13, 2021 at the Lekki Toll Gate for and against the opening of the Admiralty Toll Gate,” a statement from the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, said on Thursday.

The statement, signed by the State’s attorney-general Moyosore Onigbanjo,
added that the government will not tolerate any form of violent actions and urged the police to respect the right of citizens.
