Up to 10 protesters have been reportedly arrested by security operatives at the Lekki toll gate.
One of the coordinators of #OccupyLekkiTollgate Kunle Ajayi who revealed this said the arrested protesters are currently in police custody.
“Police have just arrested 10 protesters – Four ladies and six guys. They were beaten mercilessly and injured,” he said.
Meanwhile, the #DefendLagos group led by Alabi Oladimeji, has suspended its counter-protest expected to hold at the #Lekkitollgate Saturday.
He made this known at a press conference hosted on his Facebook page.
The Federal Government and the police had earlier warned youths who planned to protest at the Lekki tollgate on Saturday (today) to have a rethink and shelve the protests.
But the young Nigerians, under the aegis of #EndSARS Season 2 and #OccupyLekkiTollgate, vowed to defy the government’s order.
They said their action was informed by the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry allowing the Lekki Concession Company to reopen the Lekki tollgate.
