The planned #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest slated for today February 13, over the move to reopen Lekki Toll Plaza in Lagos State is generating tension.
News Wheel Nigeria learnt that the Lagos State Police Command has deployed its fully kitted officers to the Lekki toll plaza along the Lekki-Epe expressway.
Vehicles were seen moving freely in the area on Saturday morning. A group of journalists could be seen at the venue of the protests.
However, some of the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters have been attacked and arrested on Saturday morning by the police in Lagos State.
“Why are you after us. We have a right to protest. I could have been crushed by a car as the police were running after me for protesting,” one of them was heard saying as the police manhandled him and forced him into a white Hilux van to an unknown destination.
