SocialMediaTrends: #OccupyLekkiTollGate – reactions trail govt’s plan to reopen Lekki toll plaza

Published

on

The social media space in Nigeria on Monday was flooded with threats by #EndSARS protesters, who have vowed to hold a fresh protest at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos this weekend.

The calls came following plans by the Lagos State government and the Lekki Concession Company [LCC] to resume operations at the toll plaza.

The decision to reopen four months after the shooting of unarmed protesters by security operatives at the toll gate had reportedly raised controversies among members of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry.

#EndSARS protesters are insisting on a permanent lockdown of the toll gate until justice is served to victims of the unfortunate shooting incident of October 20, 2020.

They have also threatened to start fresh protests if the government fails to adhere to their warnings.
