Nigerians Plan Another Protest Over Reopening Of Lekki Tollgate

Nigerians have resolved to stage another protest over the ruling of the Lagos State Judicial Panel allowing Lekki Concession Company to regain possession and reopen the Lekki tollgate.

The tollgate has been closed following the shooting and killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers and police.
The Lagos panel was divided as five of the nine members of the panel led by Justice Doris Okuwobi (rtd), voted in support of the reopening of the tollgate at the last sitting on Saturday.

Irked by the decision of the panel, Nigerians have planned a protest at the tollgate stating that the tollgate remains shut until justice is served to the victims of the Lekki shooting.
The protest has been fixed for Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 7am.

Tweeting in support of the protest, Omoyele Sowore, said the tollgate must remain shut until the perpetrators of the killings are brought to justice.
