The Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has declared that no protest will be allowed to hold at the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday, February 13th.
The Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry had on Saturday, February 6th gave permission to the Lekki Concession Company LCC take over the tollgates that have been shut since October 2020 after the gunshot incident that reportedly left some EndSARS protesters dead and injured.
They have begun to mobilise on social media with #RevolutionNow and #OccupyLekkiTollGate, with the matter trending as number one and three on Twitter.
While the #OccupyLekkiTollgate proponents were making plans for their protests, another group using the hashtag #DefendLagos announced plans to hold a counter-protest at the same Lekki tollgate.
Speaking on the development, Odumosu while speaking to newsmen, said no group would be allowed to hold any protest come Saturday, February 13th.
“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.”he sai
