HAPPENING NOW: Over 100 Heavily Armed Police Officers Storm Lekki Toll Gate With Ambulance Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Protest (Photos)


Security operatives are currently at the Lekki tollgate ahead of two protests scheduled to hold tomorrow.

Two groups, under the #OccupyLekkiTollGate and #DefendLagos hashtags, had taken to social media to announce plans to hold demonstrations at the Lekki tollgate tomorrow.


The development comes days after the Lagos judicial panel of enquiry approved the handover of the tollgate to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), months after it was shut down due to the shooting incident during the #EndSARS protest in October 2020.

The approval, however, generated mixed reactions on social media — with some youths threatening to demonstrate at the tollgate on February 13, while others pledged to defend Lagos by staging a counter protest.

Hours before the proposed demonstrations are scheduled to start, hundreds of heavily-armed police officers were seen at the tollgate this night.

A policeman, who preferred not to be named, confirmed to Newsmen that more than 100 officers were deployed to the tollgate, in line with the police commissioner’s directive to dislodge any protest at the plaza.

Below are some photos of the security operatives in a show of force at the toll plaza.
